From genetics to the social determinants of health – research on Roma health

On 1-3 June 2016, our colleagues Andrej Belák, Daniela Bobáková, Ingrid Babinská and Peter Kolarčik met with other prominent researchers from Bulgaria, Croatia, Hungary, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Spain and the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia at the University of Debrecen. They were invited to share knowledge generated through our research on Roma health and to discuss research gaps and priorities.

The meeting was entitled “Central Eastern European Networking Event of Researchers on Roma Health and Policy”. It was organized by the WHO Collaborating Centre on Vulnerability and Health at the Department of Preventive Medicine, Faculty of Public Health, University of Debrecen in Hungary, in collaboration with the Division of Policy and Governance for Health and Well-being of WHO/Europe.
