Indigenous health research abstracts

From the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine website. Papers presented focus on current issues in Indigenous peoples from around the world. Although indigenous peoples across the globe represent the most vulnerable of all populations, indigenous peoples in Africa remain "the most vulnerable of the most vulnerable" with the health and welfare of women and children a question of critical concern. Indigenous peoples in Africa are invisible to public health institutions, NGOs and researchers such that institutional indifference to this acutely vulnerable populations should be understood as part of the problem.
