How people are treated differently in healthcare

This book will tell you about FRA’s work on how people might be treated differently in healthcare and on multiple discrimination in healthcare.

Multiple discrimination is when you are treated worse than others because you are different in more than 1 way.

For example, because you are:

  • woman and young
  • with a disability and a different skin colour.


Sometimes only people who are different in more than one way are discriminated against.
