SAMMANFATTNING

Syftet med denna studie var att få djupare kunskap på hur romer ser på hälsa. Studien är kvalitativ, baserad på åtta semistrukturerade intervjuer, genom ett målmedvetet urval. Deltagarna bestod av fem kvinnor och tre män. De tre kategorierna som framkom var: Hälsa handlar om hela människan, En medvetenhet om livsstilens betydelse för hälsa samt Samhällets inverkan på hälsa. Hälsa sågs som en kombination av psykiskt och fysiskt välmående och betydelsen av en god hälsa var väldigt stor hos samtliga. Samtliga var väl medvetna om vad som påverkar deras hälsa. Informanterna påtalade att levnadsvanor var bidragande orsaker till den ökade fysiska ohälsan som ansågs finnas bland romer, detta gällde särskilt matvanorna. Det fanns dock en positiv framtidstro och många såg en ökad medvetenhet kring hälsosamt beteende hos romer. Diskriminering och arbetslöshet ansågs vara starka bidragande orsaker till den psykiska ohälsan hos romer. Studiens resultat tyder på att samhället har en viktig uppgift för att ge goda förutsättningar för att förbättra hälsan hos romer. Det gäller att arbeta för att minska diskrimineringen och utanförskapet samt att få ut romer i arbetslivet

ABSTRACT

The aim of this study was to get a deeper understanding for the way the Roma look upon health. The study is qualitative. It was based on semi-structured interviews of eight participants which were purposefully selected. Five participants were women and three were men. Three categories appeared: health covers physical as well as mental wellbeing; an awareness of the impact of lifestyle on health; and the impact of society on health. Health were seen as a combination of mental and physical wellbeing. Further, the importance of good health was very high for all respondents. All were aware of what may affect their health. The respondents considered that the way of living was a contributing factor to the poorer health that they believe exists among the Roma. Discrimination and unemployment were also seen as strong contributing factors to bad mental health. The results of the study show that the society has an important role to give good conditions to improve the health among the Roma. It is important to work for reduction of discrimination and unemployment.
