Housed Gypsies and Travellers in the UK: work, exclusion and adaptation
Author(s): Smith D, Greenfields M

Abstract: Gypsies and Travellers1 are one of the most excluded black and minority ethnic (BME) communities in the UK across numerous domains. Despite the increased policy focus on levels of unemployment and economic inactivity among BME groups in recent years, little attention has been paid to the economic position of Gypsies and Travellers, not least because there is a lack of systematic data on the employment status and working patterns of these communities.

Author(s): Casals M, Pila P, Langohr K, Millet JP, Cayla` J A, Roma Population Working Group

Background: Roma ethnicity is greatly affected by tuberculosis (TB), AIDS, injecting drugs use (IDU) and imprisonment. Methods: We assessed the incidence of several health problems by means of a retro- spective cohort study performed in Camp de la Bota, Barcelona (Spain). The 380 individuals included in the 1985 TB outbreak investigation were followed-up until 31 December 2008. One hundred ninety-two subjects (50.5%) were men and 188 (49.5%) women. Information sources included question- naires taken at the time of this outbreak, a population census and other registries from Barcelona and Catalonia. Cox proportional hazards mixed models were employed in the multivariate survival analysis.

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. 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.
