Doctors of the World publishes a report on access to healthcare of the most vulnerable populations in Europe - April 2013

Doctors of the World presented its new report entitled "Access to healthcare in Europe in times of crisis and rising xenophobia" at the occasion of a press conference organised in Brussels on April 9th, 2013. Based on the interviews of more than 8.400 patients, data collected in 14 cities of seven European countries, this report puts the emphasis on the negative impact of the economic and social crisis on health systems and access to healthcare and on the rising xenophobia against migrants in Europe. Doctors of the World demands a universal health coverage for all and calls for a full access to national immunisation schemes for all children in Europe. In addition, Doctors of the World requires an equal access to pre and post natal care for all pregnant women.
