Serbia: Alarming warning - More and more young Roma aged 28-29 have premature heart attacks, cardiovascular diseases and diabetes

The famous internist-cardiologist from Leskovac, Dr. Miodrag Miladinović-Mici, has more than two decades of work experience, has an excellent approach and communication with patients and is very dedicated to their treatment.

What can be said from the clinical experience, covered over decades from the coronary department of the Leskovac General Hospital, is that the clinical impression is that members of the Roma population at an earlier age are more likely to have heart attacks and coronary diseases, that women who belong of the Roma population have diabetes and kidney failure at an earlier age, already in their thirties.

"However, the clinical impression, which can be easily translated into statistics, is that members of the Roma population suffer the same pain as those for whom the statistical analysis was made, namely in the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Romania and in Croatia, where by the way there are many Roma and they form a human social community in which they live, and they have been analyzed to show that people with the same blood pressure, the same cholesterol, the same body weight, the so-called Caucasians, compared to members of the Roma population, members of the Roma population have more cardiovascular diseases. Why is that. There are several reasons. One is genetic. Translated simply, they have premature angina pectoris, premature myocardial infarction, premature aortic dissection because we have, I can tell you from experience, it's not at all strange that men at twenty-eight, twenty-nine years old have heart attacks, so it's about members of the Roma population. It means genetic predisposition.

When we talk about shortening the life of members of the Roma population, it means that the life expectancy is shorter than that of the Caucasians, let's call them all that, I won't use other terms now, but it's a medical term, infectious causes affect everywhere. And without physical activity, with fast food, with sweets, you have this waist circumference, it creates metabolic syndrome, it is pre-diabetes and we are talking about the female population, they move less."




Ramush Muarem - Cirko: The most dangerous source for spreading misinformation and propaganda are social networks!

Propaganda and disinformation are gaining momentum, especially on social media. In the past, propaganda was mostly used for advertising purposes, today it has penetrated into every pore of society, says journalist Ramush Muarem - Cirko, in an interview with CIVIL Media.

he adds that only with positive and realistic propaganda can we fight black and bad propaganda.

"During the corona, I published a sarcastic propaganda text on social networks that "only in Shutka there is no corona". That propaganda spread very quickly, however, the purpose of such propaganda was to point out to me that the Roma in Shutka are forgotten by society, by the system," says Muarem.

He emphasized that only with a strong campaign and media literacy will the citizens be able to get to know the bad side of propaganda and disinformation.




R. North Macedonia: The homeless in a race for life with the harsh winter and poverty

Homelessness is a profound attack on dignity, social exclusion and the right to life. It is (prima facie) a violation of the right to housing and violates a number of human rights. People experiencing homelessness, even when housed in the Centers, need food, work, health care and support for mental health and the trauma they have experienced.

The last time a global survey was done – by the United Nations in 2005 – it was estimated that over 100 million people were homeless worldwide. As many as 1.6 billion people lack adequate housing (Habitat, 2015). In 2021, the World Economic Forum reported that there are 150 million homeless people worldwide.

North Macedonia is not excluded from this phenomenon either, where the Red Cross and institutions within the Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs provide shelter.

The Homeless Center in Skopje's Momin Potok says that until now, since the center was opened 15 years ago, there have been no cases of death in the stationary part during the winter period. They point out that the research carried out by their professional team that works dedicatedly in the homeless center shows that the following reasons for a person to become homeless are: The addictive nature of the homeless to alcohol, narcotic substances, gambling, psychiatric diseases, poverty and social exclusion, unemployment and property-legal unresolved issues.

The male population is the most represented group. Homeless women are not excluded, but their number is much smaller compared to homeless men, where the percentage ratio is 80:20, according to the Point for the Homeless.

Most of the time, the homeless are individuals, with an average age of 55, who have weak, undeveloped family relationships, and in most cases, they don't have those relationships at all. Homeless families who use the services at the homeless center are less represented.


A dark demographic future for Macedonia, 12,000 people move out every year

The projections of the State Statistics Office for the population in Macedonia until 2070 are very negative. Statisticians with this projection try to appeal to the authorities and carry out strategies based on data. Emigration is key to the demographic future.

If this continues, by 2070 Macedonia will have a population of 1.25 million.

"The results of the analyzed data from the population projections indicate that in the foreseeable future it is difficult to expect an improvement in the demographic situation if we do not intervene with appropriate solutions", say the State Statistics Office, whose data show that an average of 12 thousand people are emigrate from the country. Apart from emigration, Macedonia also has a problem with a low birth rate.

Statisticians believe that Macedonia will have to import labor, and the
