Report Highlights Lack Of Access To Health Care For Vulnerable People In Europe

BMJ Opinion: Doctors of the World: Vulnerable people should not fear arrest when seeking health care
Rob Aldridge, Wellcome Trust Clinical Research Career Development fellow at the Institute of Health Informatics; Delan Devakumar, NIHR clinical lecturer at the Institute for Global Health at the University College London (UCL); and Ibrahim Abubakar, professor at and director of the UCL Institute for Global Health, discuss findings from a report recently published by Doctors of the World. The report “provides evidence of the systemic failure of European health systems for many people currently living within the region. … The only conclusion that can be made from the data is that European health care systems do not serve these individuals well, that their rights are not being met, and that health care coverage remains far from universal” (11/8).
