The latest issue of the European Journal of Health Law features an open access article titled “Ethnic Diversity and Access to Healthcare from a Human Rights Perspective: The Case of the Roma in Europe”. This article by the Greek lawyer Elisavet Alexiadou, a Fellow at our partner Global Health Law Groningen Research Centre, examines Roma access to healthcare in Europe from a human rights perspective, and assesses the status of the Roma right to health (care) within a particular national reality, that is Greece. “Roma, the largest and oldest ethnic group in Europe, systematically encounter difficulties in healthcare settings, while they are often exposed to high levels of poverty and social exclusion, adversely affecting their health and well-being.”
