AIES 2013 Conference Final Program
BEYOND THE ECONOMIC, SOCIAL AND POLITICAL CRISIS: THE ROLE OF HEALTHCARE SYSTEMS
Deadline to submit final papers is postponed to October 31st 2013.
With the 2013 National Convention, the AIES invites researchers and practitioners to consider the impact of the global financial and economic crisis that began in 2007 on the health of the population and the role that the health and social systems play in promoting development and contributing to overcome the current recession; which has led to a real social and political crisis, especially in Europe.
The conference will also consider the contribution that the healthcare sector could give, as a factor in investment and development, to resolve the current recession. In this respect, however, there is ample empirical evidence that the universal coverage of disease risks led to significant benefits, not only in terms of health, but also in terms of increasing labor productivity and capital in different countries.
