Author(s): Bylica J

Bergitka Roma (Mountain Romanis) is the poorest group of Roma in Poland. Most of them are excluded from major society; their educational level is very low. They are also least respected by other Roma groups. We were implementing Pilot Government Program for Roma Community in Malopolska for 2001 – 2003 health situation of Roma families living in submontane regions was very alarming. Serious health problems resulted among other things, from low standard of hygiene and extremely poor social conditions, also limited access to health services.
