Equity Action - Kick Off and Needs Assessment

On 7-8 April, the kick off meeting of the Joint Action on Health Inequalities took place in Luxembourg. The aim of the meeting was to discuss the overall methodology of the Joint Action and how the different partners will work together.

The general aims of the Joint Action are to help reduce health inequalities by developing knowledge for action on health inequalities; supporting the engagement at EU, Member states and regional level in tackling health inequalities; enabling shared learning between Member States and other actors; and supporting the development of effective action at European policy level.
