As an exception to the linkage law (1998) the right to basic healthcare should be guaranteed.
People that are made undocumented, migrants and rejected asylumseekers from countries outside the European Union should have access to basic healthcare.
According to the CAK (Centraal Administratie Kantoor) it works according the law, all these groups (undocumented people from outside the EU) have entitlement to basic healthcare.
Yet in practice it’s not the case. This is why the A2HC committee is amplying these facts of exclusion and aims to make healthcare fully accessible.
Accessing basic healthcare needs should be a straightforward issue because it directly addresses the fundamental requirement of every human being: to stay healthy and have the ability to lead a productive and fulfilling life. Without adequate healthcare, people may suffer from preventable illnesses that could potentially become life-threatening without proper treatment.
Our committee consists of representatives within the Amsterdam City Rights Coalition. A group of people and ngo’s aiming to make the city fully accessible for undocumented citizens. Mail us if you want more info.
