AHEAD: Action for Health and Equity Addressing medical Deserts

 image001

In line with its commitment on internal areas at national level, Cittadinanzattiva is taking part to the AHEAD project, which started in April 2021.

Objectives
The Project AHEAD addresses the challenge of medical deserts and medical desertification in Europe in an effort to help reduce health inequalities. The approach applied in this Project aims to build knowledge, encourage (digital) innovation in health service delivery to improve access and apply a participatory approach to public health policymaking. The Project will be carried out in Romania, Serbia, Moldova, Italy and the Netherlands and will benefit health policymakers, patients’ organizations, health professionals’ organisations, affected communities and more. The countries were carefully selected to highlight different manifestations of medical deserts and to address interconnectedness as a result of health worker mobility. The ultimate impact at society and EU level is better access to health services, especially in underserved areas, and more equitable access to sufficient, skilled and motivated health workers, starting with the countries involved in the Project.
