Inclusive Schools: The 2nd Report of the Free Schools Monitoring Project (2014) builds upon previous research carried out by ROTA (2012, 2013) which assessed the risks of emerging inequalities within the free schools programme and explored potential ways of addressing these.
The aMASE community study is an online survey. It focuses on the barriers to accessing health care for migrant communities. The survey is open to all migrants, whether they are living with HIV or not. Information from this study will be used to help plan services and ensure that the best care is available for everyone in Europe, no matter where they come from.
ROTA is promoting this important survey of health care for migrant communities. Please encourage your members to participate in the survey.
The community survey takes around 15 minutes to complete. To take part you just have to be aged 18 or over and living outside your country of birth. Taking part will make a difference to you, your family and your community. Take part in the community study.
