There are seven key areas of focus: equality, inclusion, participation, education, employment, health, and housing.

For each area, the Commission has put forward new targets and recommendations for Member States on how to achieve them, both of which will serve as important tools to monitor progress and ensure that the EU makes more headway in providing the vital support that so many Roma living in the EU still need.

The Commission is calling on Member States to submit national strategies by September 2021 and report on their implementation every two years.
