Problems and Perception
The health of Roma people is significantly worse compared to the majority European population. Lower use of health services may involve choice on the part of the Roma or unresponsiveness or discrimination on the part of health care providers. There are contrary views on whether to reform mainstream services, or set up alternative services, but any intervention that reinforces ideas of difference may be politically divisive in some countries. The health needs of the diverse Roma population lack attentions, given the absence of research and the lack of advocacy on their behalf. Safeguarding the human rights of their Roma communities is now one of the criteria for the acceptance of a country into the European Union.
