Services organisation is offering to its members

In the last few years, Yurom Center has predominantly dealt with monitoring and implementation of the parts of the Health Action Plan in the local self-government. Those two projects are typical and they are similar to this project. The previous project defined the priorities and the manner of making the decisions which are important for the improvement of health of the Roma communities that live in the unhygienic settlements.
