Nobody Left Outside

Improving healthcare access for underserved communities

7.30 - 8.45, Thursday, 3 October 2019 & Exhibition 3 - 4 October 2019

Organised by MSD and NLO

A growing number of people in Europe are left outside of the healthcare system. These include our most marginalised communities, such as homeless people, migrants, sex workers, prisoners, people who use drugs and LGBTI people. The Nobody Left Outside (NLO) initiative aims to help engage these communities in healthcare policy and service design, to improve access and equity, and help achieve the SDGs. Building on the conversations started and the outcomes generated by a highly successful EHFG session in 2017, this event comprises:

1. NLO Breakfast Workshop

Thursday, 3 October 2019, 7:30-8:45
This kick-off workshop will discuss recent policy developments, present the NLO Service Design Checklist (a tool to help all parties develop accessible health and support services) and launch the Joint Statement of the NLO Thematic Network.

2. NLO Exhibition
3-4 October 2019, all day
This interactive exhibit will allow participants to engage first-hand with NLO communities and to better understand their lived experience – to challenge the mainstream characterisation of vulnerability.
