Pre-medical course for Roma students in Hungary

Dear Colleagues,

Let me draw your attention to a unique initiative at the Semmelweis University in Hungary.

Increasing in the number of Roma intellectuals would be a milestone in the field of roma integration. Roma health care workers could contribute to better collaboration of Roma people in the health care system and could reduce the inequalities in the accessibility to the health care system.

You can read further details about the initiative under the following LINK.

With best wishes,
