Discrimination against persons dealing with chronic and long-term illnesses

Amendment No. 8 | Doc. 15208 | 21 April 2021

Committee on Equality and Non-Discrimination
2021 - First part-session
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."

Explanatory note

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.
