Conference on Social Resilience and Health Equity: A human right prospective for better resilience and preparedness

In the framework of the Italian Chairmanship of the Committee of Ministers, the Council of Europe is organising an event on Social Resilience and Health Equity. In the current international context, member States are urged to further engage in dialogue and co-operation, and to rediscover the very essence of their commitment to protecting human rights. The Council of Europe has been quick to react namely by providing Member States with tools and expertise to ensure that the crisis does not undermine common values and principles.

Although the health emergency has accentuated disparities within and among countries, it has also provided an unprecedented opportunity to take decisive action to finally place equitable access to healthcare at the heart of governments' concerns.

The event aims at raising awareness on the importance of human rights protection during public health crises and how to support member states in getting better resilience and preparedness to such crises. The event will offer an opportunity to identify needs to be addressed for the protection of vulnerable groups, including persons having difficulties in accessing healthcare.

Eliane Chemla, Vice-President of the Council of Europe European Committee of Social Rights, Giuseppe Palmisano, General Rapporteur of the European Committee of Social Rights and Professor of International Law and International Human Rights Law at the University of Roma Tre, Italy will take part in the conference.
