Community Platform: Equal Right to Health for All

Published: Tuesday, December 12, 2017

The Community Platform is a network of 27 national networks and organisations in the community and voluntary sector working to address poverty, social exclusion and inequality. On the 12th December, Universal Health Coverage Day, the Community Platform of which NWCI are a member of, has published a leaflet and poster which highlight shocking facts which show that the equal right to health is being denied to those experiencing poverty, social exclusion and inequality and to call on the Government to bring about change. The leaflet and poster call on everyone to take action by informing themselves of the reality; demanding that the Government implement the reforms outlined in the Sláintecare report; remind the Government of it’s commitments in Healthy Ireland to addressing health inequalities and promote the Public Sector Duty which places a legal duty on all public sector bodies have regard to eliminating discrimination, promoting equality and protecting human rights in their daily work.
