Reducing Health Inequalities: The Role of Civil Society
This event happened on 6th November 2019
In this FEPS-TASC report, the authors take, for the first time, a more in-depth look at the impact and consequences of health inequality. Using three case study conditions – autism spectrum disorder, lung cancer and brain tumours – they analyse inequalities in access to diagnosis across three European countries (Ireland, Germany and Spain).
In addition, the report explores the unique role of civil society organisations in addressing health inequalities by providing services and supports which are not adequately supplied by the State.
