Welcome to the Section of Theory and Empirics of Health
Theory and Empirics of Health Care
The focus of the section "Theory and Empirics of Health Care" is on analyses at the health care system level (macro level), of institutions and actors in the health care system (meso level) and on the health of those affected (micro level).
The research interest is mainly focused on issues of appropriateness, quality development, barrier-free access and health inequality. Social determinants affect the distribution of health and disease in a population. A research focus is on the health conditions, behaviors, and health care utilization of vulnerable populations. These include people in particular life stages or social situations (such as unemployment, flight, homelessness)
