DG Santé DisQo Webinar: Equality Data

DG Santé DisQo Webinar: Equality Data

Join EASO and other actors across the EU Health Policy space as DG Santé hosts the 2nd Live Webinar of the Thematic Network DisQo: anti-discrimination & health equity

The theme of this session is The importance of equality data.

This second webinar will address the importance of equality data. The lack of comprehensive systems or a coordinated approach to collecting and using equality data, disaggregated by race and ethnic origin and other grounds of discrimination, represents a barrier to evaluating the impact of measures addressing racism and discrimination. Although there are some legal considerations, most notably the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and national data protection rules to protect citizens from any potential risks of misuse or abuse, the collection and processing of special categories of personal data is possible under certain conditions, including for statistical or research purposes, so can be read in the Guidance note on the collection and use of equality data based on racial or ethnic origin (European Commission 2021, DG JUST, High Level Group on Non-discrimination, Equality and Diversity, Subgroup on Equality Data).

Thursday 3o March 2023, 11.00 – 12.30 CET, Brussels, 10.00-11.30 London
