Abstract
Chronic Lyme disease in Germany, although widely discussed in the political sphere, is not yet a legitimate illness in front of the law. Despite being classified as a (re) emerging threat to public health,fragmented regulatory approaches and the isolated nature of knowledge on Borrelia and co-infections represent major obstacles on curbing its growing impact on people's health. This explorative thesis aims to add to the sociological discussion of chronic illness and healthcare reform, by shedding light on Lyme disease sufferers' experiences.
