Finding sustainable funding to build health equity in Europe

24 June 2021

14:00-15:30 CEST


As a result of COVID-19, civil society organisations must find new income streams to tackle public health challenges, such as addressing the gap in life expectancy between Roma and the general population.  Sustainable funding is vital to strengthen their capacities to support vulnerable communities, such as Roma, homeless people, migrants and refugees, people with disabilities or LGBTQI+.

Our workshop for national and local Roma and pro-Roma civil society organisations, public health communities, NGOs working with vulnerable groups and research institutes willing to establish cross-sectoral and transnational cooperation aims to increase understanding about different income streams for tackling health inequalities across Europe.

Join representatives of the European Commission, European Free Trade Association/Norway Grants and the Council of Europe to find out more about what funding might be available for activities to advance health equity and social justice.
