Call for Actions for Health and Equity from 30 organisations

EuroHealthNet led the development of a Joint Statement on health inequality in collaboration with the European Union Health Policy Platform.

The Statement, which has been endorsed by more than 30 organisations active on health at EU level, is addressed to European Institutions and EU Member State governments. It sets out why we must strive for greater health equity and what needs to be done.

The Joint Statement is accompanied by a background paper that elaborates on the points included.

The EU Health Policy Platform is a collaborative initiative which provides the framework for interaction between the European Commission and health stakeholders.

The Joint Statement and the accompanying background paper sets out what action is needed on:

  • health promotion;
  • health systems;
  • capacities;
  • data and evidence.

It also recognises the European Pillar of Social Rights as a potential vehicle for action.
