Abstract [en]

This article deals with the Roma migrant’s experience when encountering the health care system in Sweden. The article takes as a point of departure research conducted in the south of Sweden between 2008 and 2010, and this research is part of a wider field which addresses the challenges for the multicultural society. The background to the study is to be found in the Roma migration to Sweden over the last decades. The aim of the study is to examine how health care is experienced from the Roma’s point of view. What kind of attitudes do they meet? How are their special needs taken into consideration? Are there any special needs being neglected? The results of the study show that experiences are diverse. There are not specific needs with reference to ethnical background or cultural aspects; instead, people ask to be listened to, to be given attention and to be treated with respect.
