We cordially invite you to the book launch of “Post-COVID Hungary” – a new publication of Policy Solutions, supported by the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung. Our comprehensive survey reveals how Hungarian society views the two and a half years of the COVID-19 crisis. We have looked in detail at the long-term effects of the pandemic on Hungarians' fears, health attitudes, lifestyle, work and mental health. We also put a special emphasis on exploring phenomena of public health relevance such as vaccine resistance and the prevalence of symptoms indicative of post-COVID and long-COVID syndromes.
After the presentation of our new research, a panel discussion will take place. Our distinguished guests will discuss the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on Hungarian society.
