Loneliness in Luxembourg?

Loneliness is becoming a growing social problem. According to a study, millions of people are affected in Germany alone. DP MPs André Bauler and Mandy Minella asked the Minister for Family Affairs how he sees the problem of loneliness in Luxembourg and what measures the Ministry is taking to combat it.


„Rezent huet déi däitsch Familljeministesch eng Studie virgestallt, déi sech mam Thema vun der Einsamkeet an hire sozialen a gesondheetleche Konsequenze beschäftegt. Einsamkeet géif effektiv ëmmer méi zu engem seriöse gesellschaftleche Probleem. An Däitschland wiere Millioune Leit betraff an dofir gëtt gekuckt, fir divers Hëllefsefforten unzebidden. 

An deem Kader wollte mir dem Här Minister fir d’Famill, fir d’Solidaritéit, fir d’Zesummeliewen a fir den Accueil follgend Froe stellen:

  • Wéi gesäit den Här Minister d’Problematik vun der Einsamkeet hei zu Lëtzebuerg?
  • Wéi eng Mesüren hëlt de Familljeministère fir de Phänomen vun der Vereinsamung, besonnesch am Alter, ze bekämpfen?“

Strengthening the rights of pregnant self-employed workers

Pregnant employees can apply for dispensation from work before their maternity leave, for example if they are unable to work for health reasons. The self-employed do not have this option, which can have a negative impact on the recalculation of their maternity benefits.
DP MPs Carole Hartmann and Mandy Minella have asked the relevant ministers whether paid dispensation from work or an equivalent mechanism will be introduced for pregnant self-employed workers.


Is a pharmacy coming to Bettendorf?

In 2023, the then Minister of Health rejected the installation of a pharmacy in Bettendorf.

Has the Minister of Health possibly already been contacted by the municipality of Bettendorf and could other municipalities get a new pharmacy?


Introduction of skin cancer screening?

Since 2008, skin cancer screening has been available in Germany for all policyholders aged 35 and over. As a result, many cases of skin cancer are detected earlier.
DP MPs André Bauler and Gilles Baum wanted to know from the Minister for Health how skin cancer figures have developed here in the country since 2013, whether such screening would also be useful in Luxembourg and why only figures for melanoma (black skin cancer) are collected.
