More than 10,000 Roma live in Brussels, mostly from Bulgaria, Romania and Slovakia

About 10,000 Roma arrived in Brussels, mainly coming from Bulgaria, Romania and Slovakia, as well as from the countries of the former Yugoslavia, according to a survey of the Roma community in Belgium.

In this research, it is notable that the Slovakian Roma are in the most disadvantaged position, who are mostly engaged in begging and other similar activities. It is specified that their home country towards this minority is bad, and that those who are now in Belgium have the feeling that they have nothing to lose.

According to the survey, despite the customs and behavior, as many as 95% of Roma are permanently stationed in Belgium, that is, they do not intend to spend their lives in some other countries.

Historically, the first Roma who arrived in Belgium date back to the 15th century, and that the number of Roma has constantly expanded, and the biggest surge began with the EU enlargement in 2007.

Healthy injustice to Roma through hospital hospitals

The right to health care for the "minor" ethnic group in the country is disappointing, and it is even more daunting that the problems in this sphere are regularly picked up under the carpet. Not enough is being said about the pockets of the road to health insurance for Roma, the vaccination of Roma women, and the rights to promote reproductive health among Roma women. Through the hospital halls, there are parallel rocks and hidden discrimination against the Roma.

Health, as one of the weakest links in the Macedonian system, is weakening people's health on a daily basis. It is not a small number of individuals who, together with their own families, have experienced the flaws in achieving this most important and crucial right, since health starts everything. In that direction, the members of the Roma community are no exception.

The right to health care of the "smaller" ethnic community in the country is disappointing, they count on the topic, and it is even more daunting that the problems in this sphere are regularly picked up under the carpet. Not enough is being said about the pockets of the road to health insurance for Roma, the vaccination of Roma women, and the rights to promote reproductive health among Roma women. Through the hospital halls, there are parallel rocks and hidden discrimination against the Roma.

All in all, Roma in the country are victims of covert discrimination in preserving their own health, which results in distrust of patients - Roma towards medical personnel. On the one hand they face unequal treatment, and when they go for justice, for this reason they face another pain - the slow and painful injustice. A different color of the skin is still synonymous with the imposed stereotypes in society and often means repacking the Hippocratic oath. Only with a common effort and as soon as possible all of us together can dedicate ourselves to satisfying the health injustice of the Roma, which once more hurt than the disease itself!
