German writer[edit]

The research in the view of sociology, public health, social planning and social gerontology is documented [17] in various publications:[18]

Basic Education by Mahatma Gandhi[19] and Education for liberation by Paulo Freire[20] aims to develop the whole personality. The accommodation, adequate supply and health care of political refugees needs to offer psychosocial services. The elderly entering in a retirement home needs to protect their personal and social identity[21] and the support of elderly handicaps in a nursing home require's quality management. In the light of the increasing violence, a burden for the health as the World Health Organization reports,[22] the development of Public Health will be a very important issue.[23]
