Citoyens de France
Some countries maintain a system of universal health services despite (or because of) social diversity among the population. France has diverse population groups with shifts still underway from rural to urban areas, from overseas ex-colonies to continental France, and from less developed to industrialized France. Official policy maintains that all ‘citoyens de France’ are, in theory, the same. The French tradition emphasizes equality of treatment even though needs may differ. The consequent lack of research on minority populations means there is scattered evidence on the extent of social exclusion among overseas citizens, new citizens, and second-generation citizens. Do mainstream French health care services meet the needs of these groups? NGOs accuse health professionals of being blind to instances of discrimination and to their own discriminatory practices.
