New complaint registered concerning Greece

Amnesty International v. Greece, Complaint No. 217/2022

The complaint was registered on 2 November 2022. It concerns Article 11§1 (the right to protection of health) and Article E (non-discrimination). Amnesty International alleges that Greece is in violation of Article 11§1, read alone or in conjunction with Article E of the Charter, because austerity measures have worsened the accessibility and affordability of health care in Greece, with a particular disproportionate impact on certain marginalized groups. Amnesty International maintains that these impacts continue to be felt in Greece's response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
