During the planning stage of the Violence in Transit activities, resulted the constitution of a work group in the health area. One of the common needs that was identified during the investigation, was the difficult health care access that vulnerable groups have for several reasons, such as: being in an illegal situation, living in state pensions, stereotypes and prejudice.
Through this context, the present workshop aims to:
- Inform about the current public health operation system and its access for vulnerable people;
- Present empirical cases that associations have experienced in health care;
- Promote networking between the different organizations that work with vulnerable groups and health care.
Soon it will be available a document of conclusions that will be sent to the Ministry of Health in Portugal.
