European Charter on Health Equity
Sign here

COVID-19 has highlighted and exacerbated gaps and limitations in health protection and prevention in Europe.

Ethnic minorities, Roma, migrants and people with a migrant background, homeless people, disabled persons, prisoners, LGBTIQ+ are disproportionately affected by poor health and experience inequalities in accessing basic rights and services.


On Human Rights Day 2020, the European Public Health Alliance launched the revised European Charter on Health Equity to improve health and well-being for all and prevent unfair and avoidable health inequalities.
