Hidden Health Crisis: Health Inequalities and Disaggregated Data

Hidden Health Crisis: Health Inequalities and Disaggregated Data

This report examines the extent of health inequalities experienced by Roma in Romania. It shows that Roma are at greater risk in relation to many medical conditions, are less able to access healthcare and medicine, and are living shorter and less healthy lives than their non-Roma peers.

The report highlights the need for disaggregated data, disaggregated by ethnicity as well as by other factors, in order to highlight the indirect discrimination which Roma experience. It outlines the legal framework for the collection of such data, including the safeguards which are in place to protect the privacy of individuals.
