A civic research-action promoted by Active Citizenship Network during 2014 with the aim to explore the relationship between mobility and access to healthcare in Italy. The focus is on road safety, disabled people and good practices.
239 articles were analyzed from January 2013 to August 2014 for a total of 180 reports.
A Final Report was presented during the European Mobility Week in the roundtable and the European webinar titled “Protecting Citizens' Rights: challenges and opportunities for EU passengers” organized by Active Citizenship Network in Rome on 16th September 2014.
The objective was to highlight the relevance of physical access to healthcare centers and, indirectly, to offer some insights for a proper implementation of the Cross-border healthcare Directive, to make sure that practical aspects related to the travel needs of the patients are not missed.
For Cittadinanzattiva-Active Citizenship Network, this work represents a point of connection between two extremely relevant issues: right of mobility and right to receive care.
