Author(s): Open Society Institute
Abstract:

For the millions of Roma living in Central and Eastern Europe1 and South Eastern Europe,2 persistent discrimination and marginaliza- tion are a daily reality that results in poorer health for individuals and communi- ties. Roma3 make up the largest ethnic minority in these countries with an overall population estimated at 5 to 6 million people.4 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.
