This editorial authored by Open Society Foundations staff in the International Journal of Public Health discusses lessons learned from recent research findings and outlines a number of challenges in exploring and addressing the various factors that contribute to the health gap between Roma and majority populations.
Discrimination and exclusion have resulted in unacceptable standards of health for Roma. This year’s EUPHA conference offered a chance to let more than 1,000 health experts know.
Despite strong Roma integration policies, Roma still have less access to health care than majority populations. To address this gap, community groups are monitoring health care services and advocating for change.
National strategies for Roma integration in Europe cannot succeed without resolute and unequivocal action to combat racism and discrimination.
