A healthy dose of disruption : the Nobody Left Outside Initiative joins the European Health Forum Gastein

The Nobody Left Outside initiative is pleased to announce its participation in the 2019 edition of the European Health Forum Gastein. Our breakfast workshop (3 October 2019) will provide an update on the journey of the Nobody Left Outside coalition and the presentation of the collaborative work, including a Joint Statement developed with the support of the European Commission through the EU Health Policy Platform and the development of a Service Design Checklist, a tool to help policy makers and healthcare providers to develop accessible health and support services for underserved and stigmatized communities.

This session emphasises the conference’s theme “A healthy dose of disruption? Transformative change for health and societal well-being”, affirming that underserved groups are not necessarily ‘hard to reach’ – the health services are.

In addition to this workshop, an interactive photo exhibition will be taking place during the Gastein Forum (3 and 4 October 2019). The photo exhibition will provide an opportunity to interact with members of the NLO initiative, as well as the stories and the cross-sectorial perspectives of their communities, with the aim of overcoming bias that hinders equitable access.
