ISSA: Report highlights rehabilitation services and Post-COVID-19 conditions

The ISSA (International Social Security Association) Working Group on Rehabilitation (IWGR) has produced the report “Rehabilitation for COVID-19 and Post-COVID-19 conditions”, which analyses how countries have addressed these issues. The report is based on an international survey conducted by the German Federal Pension Insurance (Deutsche Rentenversicherung Bund – DRV Bund). Fifteen social security institutions from Africa, Asia, North America and Europe, all members of the Working Group, actively participated in the survey. The aim was to assess care for COVID-19 and post-COVID-19 conditions with a primary focus on rehabilitation services. Recognizing differences in social security and health care systems, the intention was not to directly compare strategies but to facilitate knowledge exchange.
