Infant mortality rate high in Serbian Roma communities

Like many countries in South East Europe, Serbia has a large Roma community.

Their children are among the most vulnerable in the country, the infant and under-five mortality rates are double those of the general population.

A big part of the problem is that Roma families either don't know about local healthcare facilities, or feel they don't have the right to go there.
