Driving Forward Gender Equality in Europe: Combating Discrimination in the Workplace and Beyond
The Council of Europe has endorsed universality, access to quality care, equity, and solidarity as common values and principles underpinning the health systems of the EU Member States. However, certain marginalised groups, such as people living with HIV, the LGBT community or sex workers are still 'hard to reach' for health services.
With discriminatory gender roles still compromising the health and well-being of women and girls in Europe there is a pressing need to address the range of barriers women can face in accessing health services.
This timely International Symposium continues the debate on how to work towards an EU-wide policy framework on gender equality and non-discriminatory access to healthcare. The Symposium provides a key platform for the discussion of a better European regulatory framework aimed at strengthening prevention, protection and inclusion of women.
