Although access to health services is a human right, people with disabilities face several barriers in their efforts to access such services, reporting more unmet health needs, worse experience with health care services and personnel, and poorer health outcomes. Timely, accessible, affordable and good quality health services are key to the health and well-being of all people. Aiming to create an equitable health system will not only bring benefits for people with disabilities, but will also have a positive impact on the economy and society.
We need more data and more research on which to base the development of public policies, strategies and programs aimed at transforming the health system. For this reason, it is important to engage in a fruitful dialogue between the academic community, decision makers and people with disabilities and their organizations, in order to identify barriers to access and inequities in health care and move towards an inclusive health system.
For this reason, the Millennium Nucleus DISCA (Disability and Citizenship Studies), together with Fondecyt DisPar (Reproductive processes and parental experiences of people with disabilities in Chile: discrimination, adaptation and resistance), and the Universidad Diego Portales, are organizing the Seminar “Towards an equitable health system”.
