The launch the “All Ireland Traveller Health Study, Summary of Findings” in September 2010 confirmed the poorer health experience of members of the Traveller Community compared to the settled community. It highlighted various specific areas for concern and made several recommendations for action. What the study provided is a strong evidence base of the health inequalities experienced by the Traveller Community. It also called strongly for the translation of this evidence into action. This call remains unanswered by government and continues to be lobbied for by the Traveller Community.
