The ‘European Network to reduce vulnerabilities in health’ was founded in 2015 with NGOs and academic partners from 19 European countries. Our goal is to contribute to decreased EU-wide health inequalities and to more responsive health systems that are better equipped to deal with vulnerability factors. By collecting robust, comparative routine data (quantitative and qualitative) we aim to improve the quality of service delivery and build a solid evidence base for advocacy for people facing vulnerabilities. If this application is successful, we expect to integrate five new member organisations into the Network. The creation of the Network has been welcomed by its members, who confirmed the relevance to their everyday work and the added value of exchanges in the four strategic objectives: mutual learning, empowerment, data collection and advocacy. In addition to the data collection, analysis of legal frameworks in different countries, workshops and training activities, in 2016, we will begin peer reviews to allow members to directly experience different modes of providing health and care services. The Network will continue the process of rigorous data collection and analysis with specific support being provided by the Network secretariat to the five members that expect to start collecting data for the first time in 2016. The Network invites academics to independently review the data and understand how vulnerabilities contribute to health inequalities. The Network also engages with European institutions and stakeholders. Given the unprecedented economic crisis and the unpredictable, fast-changing refugee situation, and the fact that our members are in the front line in responding to their humanitarian needs, the Network may need to re-prioritize its mutual learning goals in the coming months.
