Upcoming Events


Due to the Covid-19 pandemic the MEP Interest Group meetings planned for March and June have been postponed.

These will be replaced by one larger, all day meeting on November 10th 2020 in Brussels (date to be confirmed).
Here, the three thematic focus areas of the Interest Group (stigma, access and empowerment) will be discussed. The discussions will take place within the framework of the emerging EU policy priorities; taking into account the longer term impact of the current public health crisis on our advocacy actions at EU level. The arising recommendations from this multi-stakeholder event will be used to guide our future work in 2021 and beyond.

Please revisit this website soon for more information on this event.
