Our work on roma

Roma are more likely to live in poverty than non-Roma citizens. They have a higher risk of unemployment, stay in school for fewer years, and many live without access to drinking water, sanitation and electricity. Roma are more likely to suffer from chronic illness and have less access to health services.

UNDP works with national partners to promote inclusion of Roma into economic, social, political and community life.

We work with Roma communities and local partners to make sure that Roma can access quality social services. We also support community projects that can improve the quality of everyday life, and increase education and job opportunities.

Together with our partners, UNDP designs and conducts surveys to show the depth of poverty, and inform policy making.
