We are looking for A New Way - Roma Community health strategy launched in Kerry and Cork
 
 
A new HSE-funded health strategy supporting Roma families in Kerry and Cork 
'Te Rodel Nevo Drom’ (We are looking for A New Way) will be launched on Tuesday May 28th, at 11am, in the Tralee International Resource Centre (TIRC).
 
Commissioned by TIRC in December 2022, with support from HSE Cork Kerry Community Healthcare, Dr Patricia Kennedy took on the role as lead researcher for the project to develop a strategy for Roma Families in Cork and Kerry, in collaboration with Roma peer researchers (‘experts by experience’) and with the guidance of a research advisory group. 
 
A consultation process, which involved talking with over 60 representatives from the Roma community, NGOs and statutory agencies, was completed between January and April 2023. 

The experts by experience, Isac Ianko and Marcela Venzel were key to this research and they brought the voice of their community with them. 

Peer researcher Marcela Venzel said: 

“This strategy for Roma health needs was researched in our community. It represents our Roma world and our journey today.” 

Peer researcher Isac Ianko added: 

“This work, which we have been part of, shows clarity and simplicity. All of the findings mentioned in this strategy are essential to our Roma community.” 

Head of Primary Care for HSE Cork Kerry Community Healthcare Priscilla Lynch said: 
 
“I am delighted to see this Roma Community health strategy come together after input from so many committed researchers and stakeholders. I am particularly pleased to acknowledge the role of Tralee International Resource Centre in this area, as they support the Roma in Kerry. 

“I welcome the recent establishment of Roma Supports in Cork and future supports in Kerry, which will add greatly to our capacity to meet the needs identified and recommendations made in this consultation. 
 
“I would also like to acknowledge the role of our Community Work and Social Inclusion departments in Cork Kerry Community Healthcare, in supporting partnerships with the NGO sector at community level. Their excellent work reflects the analysis in Sláintecare that acknowledges social exclusion and we strive daily to remove any barriers that stand in the way of doing the right things for patients that need care.”

 
Co-ordinator of Tralee International Resource Centre, Mary Carroll, welcomed the strategy: 
 
“We have been working with the Roma community for many years and this research is the voice of the Roma in Kerry and Cork themselves, which is the key to the way forward and effecting real change for this community - who have experienced significant levels of adversity.
 
“The findings cover the health and social needs of the Roma and the key is that they have been translated into actions - some of which can be progressed immediately, while others will require longer term planning and resources.
 
“Actions include the need to improve awareness of policy makers and providers, to celebrate Roma culture, increase access to translation and interpretation, develop a Roma Info-line and work specifically with Roma women. The complexity of the issues identified indicate there is a need for the establishment of a multi-agency response and the recruitment of Roma Peer workers to improve links between the Roma community and health and social services.”
 
 A summary of the strategy details is available in leaflet format, and in several languages for the Roma community to access. It is available from TIRC on 066 712 7918 or by emailing reception@tirc.ie. The strategy document will also be available on both www.hse.ie/romahealthstrategy and on TIRC website (www.tirc.ie) shortly.
