For Roma, Justice Is Sometimes the Best Medicine

Creator: OSF - Bringing Justice to Health

Description: A woman visits a gynecologist for a check-up, but the office demands she pay a fee for a service that is free. A young child and his parents are never informed about vaccination for measles, mumps, and rubella. A man in need of dialysis is thrown out of the hospital because he asks for transportation reimbursement, which is required by law. These are just a few of the many health rights violations Roma people face in Macedonia. But the work of Roma paralegals is having a profound impact on Roma health in their communities.
