In the draft resolution, paragraph 2, after the words “They are a source of” insert the following word:
Persons suffering from chronic and long-term illnesses may be victims of multiple forms of discrimination, whether during their schooling, in the workplace or while job-seeking. This multidimensional aspect could be reflected in the draft resolution.
In the draft resolution, paragraph 3, after the word “disabilities” add the following sentence:
"It makes full and effective participation and inclusion in society a priority."
The United Nations Convention on the rights of persons with disabilities is an innovative legal instrument in that it makes inclusion a priority that must guide all policies aimed at supporting people with disabilities.
In the draft resolution, paragraph 4, after the word “obstacles” add the following words:
Not only do persons suffering from chronic and long-term illnesses face obstacles and barriers in their day-to-day dealings but they also fall victim to discrimination, which infringes the principle of equality.
In the draft resolution, at the end of paragraph 4, after the words “reasonable accommodation” insert the following words:
"and the principles of equality and non-discrimination."
Inserting an express reference to the principles of equality and non-discrimination might provide greater clarity at the end of this paragraph.
In the draft resolution, paragraph 5, after the words “social disadvantage” add the following words:
The main focus of this report is discrimination against persons suffering from chronic and long-term illnesses. Non-discrimination is one of the key principles of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (Article 3 of the Convention).
In the draft resolution, paragraph 6.1, replace the word “vulnerabilities” with the following words:
"the taking into account of vulnerabilities."
Vulnerabilities should be taken into account when devising general and public health policies, which will make them more effective.
In the draft resolution, paragraph 6.2, after the words “return to work” insert the following sentence:
"Adaptation of the workstation should be offered where possible."
Applying the principle of reasonable accommodation makes it possible, for example, to adapt the workstation to difficulties. This principle is a means of guaranteeing fair treatment.
In the draft resolution, paragraph 7, replace the last sentence with the following sentence:
"It calls on the national authorities not only for the adoption of a clear definition of the right to be forgotten but also for the effective and uniform implementation of this protection. It recommends the evaluation of patient protection systems."
The right to be forgotten prevents some forms of discrimination. Implementing this right enables those who so wish not to have to declare that they have had a certain illness in order not to be penalised when they seek insurance for a loan for a professional or personal project.
