Albania: Roma Children Access to Early Childhood Services

In 2011, UNICEF supported a nation-wide exercise in Albania known as Roma Mapping, where social scientists visited almost every known Roma settlement in the country and surveyed the institutions supporting them. This came as a response to the many obstacles observed in respecting Roma children's rights, especially their inclusion in early childhood education, access to social and child protection services, and access to health and welfare.

This report presents aggregated information on Roma children in relation to their education and health. It identifies issues of concern in each area of early childhood services that need to be addressed by the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Health, and Municipality officials across Albania.
