Thematic network: Tackling health inequities through anti-racism and anti-discrimination

The pan-European Thematic Network* DisQo aims to address the impact of structural racism and discrimination on physical and mental health inequities, an issue for which there is overwhelming evidence, but one that so far has gained little attention in the public health domain. The network has been initiated and is led by the European Public Health Alliance (EPHA), and currently 36 organisations support DisQo, including EUPHA.

In the first half of 2023, the Network will develop a Joint Statement summarising the common position of the network. The network will organise several network meetings and public webinars.

*Thematic Networks are temporary networks of stakeholder organisations created in the EU Health Policy Platform, which is hosted by the European Commission, DG SANTE.
