Left Out: Roma and Access to Health Care in Eastern and South Eastern Europe
Author(s): Open Society Institute

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.

Author(s): J P van Dijk, O Orosova, P Kolarčik, S A Reijneveld, A Madarosa-Geckova

Roma people are commonly described as having an unhealthy lifestyle—for example, an unhealthy diet, intensive smoking, frequent alcohol consumption and a lack of physical activity. However, data about such health-endangering behaviours among Roma adolescents are scarce and of poor quality. The aim of our study is to assess the occurrence of health-endangering behaviours among Slovak Roma adolescents in comparison to non-Roma adolescents, and to assess the impact of parental education and social desirability on the differences found.
