The European Respiratory Society hosted a critical summit this summer to discuss the growing problem of health inequalities in Europe.
The key event, which brought together leading experts from politics and health, created an opportunity to implement change and address the issue of health inequalities, which are becoming even more apparent during tough economic times.
