Expert group on health inequalities discusses FRA cost of healthcare report

On 18 November, FRA presented its cost of exclusion from healthcare report at the European Commission’s Joint Action on Health Inequalities expert group meeting.

During the meeting the Commission spoke about EU-funded activities in the area of migrant and refugee health and suggested to include migrants and refugee health in the mandate of the health inequalities expert working group. This Joint Action supports the Commission’s 2009 Communication on Solidarity in Health: Reducing Health Inequalities in the EU. As the new Joint Action on Health Inequalities is also being launched which will span the next three years, participants were invited to respond to the call for proposals that also includes migrant and refugee health.
