Introduction: Roma people in Europe, as well as in Slovenia, are considered to be poorly educated. They usually do not attend health education programs for parenting, which are organised within basic healthcare insurance, because they are not adjusted to their abilities of understanding, nor their needs. Aim: The aim is to research the existing sources about Roma people and health education, which could be a foundation to developing a health educational program of preparing for parenthood for Roma women. Methods: The chosen method of work for this paper is the descriptive method with a systematic literature review, with refrences focusing on health education or patient education and the field of prepairing women for parenthood. Outdated, unproficient and unfocused literature has been excluded. Results: Roma women feel uncomfortable in the presence of unknown men and the community also has strictly seperated roles for men and women, that is why husbands and future fathers should not be included in health education sessions. Before the start of planning each session of the health educational program for Roma women, the information about their educational needs have to be gathered. With this information serving as a base of knowledge, the program is designed in a way that it maintains their motivation as high as possible. To perform the educational program, a known and comfortable room must be chosen, a group type of work but with low number of participants and oral final evalvation. Discussion and conclusion: To reduce the contrast of Roma people to the majority population it is important to secure the equality, which can only be done if we provide education, accessible to their needs and abilities, understandable and suitable to their liking. As the children are the key to the future, their health and wellbeing being the first step to improve their social standard. It is cruical to offer them educational program for parenting. Roma women are fond of knowledge, but it has to be suitable for them, which can only be achieved by putting special effort into researching their educational needs. With understanding the differences between Roma and non-Roma people, and knowing the basic principals of health education, the program of preparing for parenthood can be designed in a way that Roma women really need.
