During the workshop an online Structural Funds tool will be launched. This tool will provide practical information on the Structural Funds, and suggestions on how these Funds can be (better) used to contribute to greater health equity in the EU.
The event is supported by Mr. Dave Wilcox (UK/PES), member of the CoR, and the EU Health Programme of the European Commission (DG SANCO).
The workshop will be web-streamed and can be followed live at: http://webcast.cor.europa.eu
'Equity Action' is the Joint Action on Health Inequalities, which is a collaboration between DG SANCO and National governments of 12 EU Member States. One of the workstrands of this programme, which is coordinated by EuroHealthNet, has brought together a network of 29 regions to capture and share regional approaches to reduce health inequalities, and to strengthen understanding on how to influence and use Structural Funds to address Regional health equity issues. The outcomes of this work are the basis for the content of the workshop.
Equity Action has received funding from the European Union, in the framework of the Health Programme.
