The project aims at the social and cultural determinants of the rather poor health status of Roma in Slovakia. Drawing on previous findings, it will focus especially on aspects researched, thus far, the least, namely the causes and effects of various both direct and indirect forms of anti-Roma racism, of related both local and central policies as well as of the local standards practices within related epidemiological research. The results of the project are expected to deliver new cues not only regarding contemporary related debates in socio-cultural (medical) anthropology, but also knowledge readily applicable within public health. are shared and modified in the (transgenerational) communication.
