Personal professionalism – health visitors in the 21st century in Hungary

The fourth and last discussion of the series „Waiting Room - Women Healers and Patients on the Periphery of Medicine” will deal with the personal and professional challenges of health visitors in Hungary. The Hungarian health visitor network is called a Hungaricum as it is a unique system in Europe. Health visitors are qualified healthcare professionals who are traditionally promoting and improving the physical, mental, and social well-being of families in their district. They are specialised in women’s health, pregnancy, mother, infant and child care, as well as the health protection of adolescents. Their work covers all stages of womens’ lives.

The discussion is based on the art works of Viola Fátyol and Lilla Szász which will be shortly shown and presented. Our discussants will be:  

  • Adél Pongrácz, health visitor
