DisQo: Organisations across sectors call for stronger action against racism and discrimination to achieve health equity

Back to the "Endorsements and Sign-ons" list

EATG endorses DisQo’s Joint Statement for stronger action against racism and discrimination to achieve health equity.

Racism and discrimination are fundamental determinants of health


The organisations that are part of the DisQo network recognise racism and discrimination as Fundamental Determinants of Health. Despite the evidence for the impact of racism and discrimination on both mental and physical health inequities, the issue has so far has gained little attention in the public health domain. The growing network, which has been initiated and is led by EPHA, consists of about 40 organisations (April 2023).

Through a series of webinars, DisQo explored some of the key priorities that the network identified as areas where action is required, including language and definitions, equality data, and the breaking down of silos.

In April 2023 DisQo published a Joint Statement with five key priorities for addressing the issue in a constructive, respectful, and participatory way.
