On 1 June, the European Commission welcomed the decision by the Council and Parliament to designate 2007 as 'European Year of Equal Opportunities for All'. The year will aim to make Europeans aware of their right not to be discriminated against, to promote equal opportunities in areas from work to healthcare, and to show how diversity makes the EU stronger. EFA very much hopes that this will include awareness and consideration for people with allergy, asthma and COPD, so as to ensure that they too have the right to equal opportunities for participation in society, without barriers. The year will have four themes: rights, representation, recognition and respect, with a total budget of Euros 15million for the 12 months' activities.
