Access to healthcare for people facing multiple vulnerability factors in 27 cities across 10 countries. Report on the social and medical data gathered in 2013 in eight European countries, Turkey and Canada

Abstract : This Doctors of the World - Médecins du monde (MdM) report presents the analysis of data collected in 27 cities in 10 countries: eight European countries, together with Turkey and Canada. In 2013, this data covered 18,098 people (16,881 of whom were in the eight European countries) and 31, 067 contacts (29,400 of whom were in the eight European countries), 17,393 medical consultations (15,799 in the eight European countries), leading to 23,697 different diagnoses which were recorded and coded (21,913 of which were in the eight European countries). This year we wanted to reiterate the need for unconditional access to both antenatal care for pregnant women and to essential childhood vaccinations, neither of which are currently universally guaranteed. This amounts to a denial of rights which goes against basic human rights, international conventions and respect for the fundamental principles of public health.
