The Equity Action week will start with the third regional meeting, during which national and regional partners will be presenting outcomes of their work around a Structural Funds Review coordinated by EuroHealthNet. Draft recommendations on how the Structural Funds can be (better) used to address health inequalities will be discussed and preparations will start for the open regional training workshop, which will be held in March 2013.
The Equity Action week will take place in Berlin. Partners involved in work around regional action to tackle health inequalities, stakeholder engagement processes, and health impact assessment training are coming together to discuss progress, to network and to share experiences and work.
