The report supplements a 2011 FRA report, 'EU-MIDIS Data in Focus 5: Multiple Discrimination', which focuses on multiple discrimination experiences by respondents of ethnic or immigrant origin, compared with the general population. 

The FRA research findings show that healthcare systems may create barriers in access to healthcare or provide healthcare of a different quality to people who share more than one protected trait, such as sex, disability and ethnicity.
