Political positionsEdit

The Party for Health Research is a single-issue political party in Germany founded in 2015 with the goal of accelerating the development of effective drugs to counter age-related diseases such as cancer, Alzheimer's disease, cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, macular degeneration, arthrosis, osteoporosis, and Parkinson's disease.[3]

The party seeks to increase the number and size of pertinent research facilities, and to expand education and training of professionals in those fields.[4] The party also strives to raise public interest in medical research in order to cause large established parties to focus more on this subject.

The party adopts a neutral position on subjects that do not immediately pertain to health research.

OrganizationEdit

As of July 2022, the party has regional branches in all 16 German states.[5]

The incumbent party leader is Felix Werth. The party's current executive board was elected at the party conference on December 7, 2019 in Berlin.
