At this time, there are few available data about the health status of the Roma people, mostly assessing genetic and infectious diseases, which reflect poverty, overcrowding, and lack of education. There is even less data regarding non–communicable and chronic diseases, especially cardiovascular diseases.

While it is widely believed that the health of Roma people is often poorer than the majority population, these inequalities remain largely unresearched.
