According to the World Health Organisation, health represents ‘a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.’ 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, discriminatory gender roles still compromise the health of women and girls in Europe and, in turn, affect families and communities. There is a pressing need to address the range of barriers women can face in accessing health services, which consequently prevents them from fully utilising their fundamental right to health.
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. It provides a key platform for the discussion of a better European regulatory framework aimed at strengthening prevention, protection and inclusion of women.
