Patronage: Hubertus Heil

Mr. Hubertus Heil undertook the patronage of the EAMHID congress 2021 in Berlin. He has been Federal Minister of Labour and Social Affairs since March 2018.

The Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs (BMAS) is a supreme federal authority of the Federal Republic of Germany. Within the Federal Government, the BMAS is responsible for labour law and occupational safety and health as well as for pensions and social security. Inclusion is also a key issue for the federal authority. Opportunities for participation and realisation have already been opened up, barriers and disadvantages were dismantled and social exclusion was reduced. Under Hubertus Heil, the BMAS is consistently pursuing this path to greater social integration and would like to further promote inclusion in Germany and enable people with disabilities to have more self-determination and participation - especially in health care.
