On the occasion of the International Roma Day, the European Roma Information Office and Age Platform Europe focus on the condition of older Roma people. That addresses social exclusion and widespread discrimination, overlooked by policy makers, living in deprived conditions at the margins of both their community and the society of the EU countries. Especially in terms of lifelong learning, active aging, access to employment, but also access to health care and decent housing. Hence, the commitment to improve the living conditions of this particular category of elderly, through the design, implementation and monitoring of integrated inclusion policies and the fight against poverty with a multidimensional life-course approach.
