Response to the EC’s Public Consultation on Gender Equality

14 June, 2019
Banner EuroHealthNet Consultation Response

EuroHealthNet responded to the European Commission’s Public Consultation on Gender Equality. While progress has been made on gender equality over the last years, the existing gender gap in life expectancy between and within Member States demonstrates an urgent need to address the underlying structural and social factors of gender and health inequalities. Especially women with a low socio-economic status, from disadvantages/socially excluded backgrounds, victims of gender-based violence and migrants require more focused attention in the Commission’s efforts to ensure gender equality.
