CBHD at the European Parliament – Press takeover

Late last year, YCE returned to the European Parliament in Brussels to host a discussion on the subject of Cross Border Health, the second of five key topics included in YCE’s white paper. This was YCE’s second official event at the European Parliament, following 2018’s launch of the white paper with a special event focusing on financial discrimination against cancer survivors.

In the lead up to the event, one of our leading case studies from the event (that of Mariana Coutinho, who was also one of the main speakers on behalf of YCE at the European Parliament) helped generate wide mainstream coverage in Portugal, securing features and new stories in outlets with a combined reach of over 22,000 readers in print and 45 million unique users online.

In addition to our press coverage in Portugal, a number of key Romanian outlets also took notice of our event thanks to the participation of our co-host, Cristian-Silviu Busoi MEP.

Below you can check out the online coverage from the event.
