ERGO Network Annual Policy Conference 2022

ERGO Network Annual Policy Conference: Implementing the EU Roma Strategic Framework

Roma access to healthcare and long-term care

23 November, 10h – 13h, Mundo B Conference Room

Join us for our Annual Policy Conference 2022!

At a time where Europe is facing multiple crises such as the ongoing pandemic, the war in Ukraine, and the spike in inflation and energy prices, many Roma find themselves facing worsening poverty and exclusion, dire living conditions, and widespread antigypsyism.

The event will serve to launch ERGO Network’s research report on “Roma access to adequate healthcare and long-term care”, based on six national case studies carried out in Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania, Slovakia, and Spain. A significant health inequality gap exists between the Roma and the majority population, across every area of physical and mental health and wellbeing, including rates of suicide, disability, life expectancy, and infant mortality.

The conference will also assess the stay of play of the newly adopted National Roma Frameworks and their alignment with the EU Roma Strategic Framework on Equality, Inclusion, and Participation and linked Council Recommendation, as well as Roma involvement in the drafting process and next steps for implementation. A robust and continued monitoring of the entire policy process should be ensured in both EU Member States and Enlargement countries.

The conference will bring together ERGO Network members from the grassroots level, EU policy-makers from across the institutional spectrum, as well as other relevant EU and national stakeholders. If you attend in person, please feel free to wear a mask. The event will be followed by a networking lunch outside the conference room. If you attend online, you will still need to register below.

We’re looking forward to counting you among the participants, so that together we can build positive, sustainable, evidence-based policy solutions that work!


This conference is kindly supported by the European Union Programme for Citizens, Equality, Rights and Values (CERV) and by the German Federal Foreign Office.
