The DisQo Health Policy Platform Network final Antidiscrimination & Health Equality Statement was submitted to DG Sante on 23 May 2023.
47 organisations and 3 Members of the European Parliament across sectors, including ASPHER, have signed the statement calling for stronger action against racism and discrimination to achieve health equity.
The statement, describing 5 key priority areas to address racism and discrimination for increasing equity in health, is the outcome of an extensive participatory process with online meetings and multiple rounds of revisions to ensure that it reflects the position of the network, and not that of the main authors. Each priority states our commitments as endorsers of the statement and identifies areas where we feel the European Commission can take increased action and/or a leadership role.
This milestone marks by no means the end of the journey. The Network is glad to inform you that DisQo will continue as a Stakeholder Network on the EU Health Policy Platform, and that we are keen to continue this path together with you.
The DisQo Joint Statement can be found in pdf on the DisQo webpage together with the DisQo webinars and the presentation of the statement at the EU Health Policy Platform Annual Meeting in Luxembourg on 19 April.
