Left Out: Roma and Access to Health Care in Eastern and South Eastern Europe

By: Open Society Institute: Public Health Program

For the millions of Roma living in Central and Eastern Europe and South Eastern Europe, persistent discrimination and marginalization are a daily reality that results in poorer health for individuals and communities. Roma make up the largest ethnic minority in these countries with an overall population estimated at 5 to 6 million people. Available data consistently shows higher rates of illness and mortality among Roma than in majority populations. Access to health care is only one factor shaping overall health, but it is critical to increasing social inclusion of Roma and ensuring equal opportunities for all.
