A factsheet on FRA's multiple discrimination project ‘Inequalities and multiple discrimination in healthcare' will be issued on 20 February 2012. It will sketch out the policy context and legal framework in the EU as regards multiple discrimination as well as the project's objectives. These include: identifying barriers and experiences of discrimination that prevent access to healthcare services for people at higher risk of exclusion; mapping policies in EU Member States to improve health services for such people; and determine ways through which health professionals can address the needs of such people. The factsheet will be available in English, Czech, French German, Italian and Swedish.
