Roma Health Scholarship Program

 
The Roma and cultural diversity – we have various stories connected with the Roma. Throughout the years we have worked out many campaigns with the participation of Roma citizens, since we are firm believers that all people in each country should live in suitable conditions and should be given equal rights.
Since 2013 Intelday implements the public presentation of the Roma Health Scholarship Program (RHSP) in Bulgaria which provides an opportunity for young, educated and highly motivated young Roma to develop their knowledge and professional experience in the healthcare field. The main goal of the communication component of the program is to improve the image of the Roma community and the integration of young Roma in the medical profession and to promote the RHSP among the relevant stakeholders.
Project specific objectives are to support the fight against negative stereotypes about intellectual and educational standards of young Roma; to promote success stories from RHSP program and successful candidates from previous years; to encourage and support partner relationships with institutions – academic and government institutions and thus to increase the institutional awareness about the need of the sustainable development of the model and it`s multiply effects; to create a positive model for professional development for the Roma; to increase awareness of opportunities for equal access to quality healthcare through Roma Health Scholarship Program and its components.
The communication component implemented by Intelday includes organizing and conducting trainings both for students and mentors for successful presentation to the media; production and dissemination of information to the media on the activities related to Scholarship Program; assistance with the participation of students or partners involved in implementing the program in TV and radio programs or interviews; presentation of successful practices at local and national media.
