The Nobody Left Outside (NLO) Initiative is delighted to invite you to the ‘NLO in Conversation’ film screening and discussion on 28 February at 18h00- 20h00 at the European Parliament in Brussels, Room SPAAK 7C50. The event is hosted by MEP Cyrus Engerer (S&D, MT) and Tiemo Wölken (S&D, DE). To attend the event, please register here.

The COVID-19 pandemic has shown with all urgency that existing inequalities to health and social care amplify in times of crisis. Over the past months, the NLO initiative has been working to create ‘NLO in Conversation’, a textual, atmospheric film that tells lived experiences of marginalised communities during the pandemic. The film will give viewers a deeper understanding and thought for discussion on how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted access to health and social care for some of the most disadvantaged members of our society.

Following the film screening, the NLO members will share their experiences, main advocacy asks in accessing healthcare and reflect on how the learnings from the ‘NLO in Conversation’ could inspire policy solutions. In the context of the upcoming European elections, the NLO members will call to include health equity in party manifestos to ensure its continuity and prioritisation during the next Parliament term.

The event will also launch Friends of NLO, an informal network of interested policymakers and health stakeholders to explore policy solutions for designing inclusive health systems, support community input to policy development and discuss best practices to improve healthcare access to marginalised communities. The event will be concluded with a networking opportunity.
