Inequalities and multiple discrimination in healthcare

A factsheet on FRA's multiple discrimination project.

The factsheet on FRA's multiple discrimination project ‘Inequalities and multiple discrimination in healthcare' was issued on 20 February 2012. It sketches 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.
