Give Roma Health

The project “Give Roma Health” is financed from the Active Citizens Fund in Bulgaria within the European  Economic Area Financial Mechanism.

ADRA Bulgaria conducted free medical examinations in 5 municipalities in Pazardzik district – Septemvri, Rakitovo, Velingrad, Bratcigovo, Pazardzik. 2500 people were reached during the 15 examination days. The examinations included free of charge medical consultation as well as  bone-thickness measurement, blood sugar, pulsoxymetrie, blood pressure, spirometry, ECG, etc. Based on the results ADRA Bulgaria concludes that there is as significantly low health culture and habits amongst the Roma population in Bulgaria. People neglect their symptoms, rarely consult with doctors and ignore their symptoms until the advanced stages of the disease. Thanks to our doctors and medical staff we managed to raise the health awareness of those people. We will continue to monitor the health of the Bulgarian citizens that are in need of medical help.
