State of the World's Minorities and Indigenous Peoples 2013: Interview with MRG Director of Policy and Communications

Alternative content

Minorities and indigenous peoples suffer more ill-health and receive poorer quality of care, says MRG in a new global report.

MRG's flagship report, State of the World’s Minorities and Indigenous Peoples 2013, presents a global picture of the health inequalities experienced by minorities and indigenous communities.

The report is launched to coincide with a United Nations General Assembly meeting to follow up on efforts made towards achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), and says that ill-health and poor healthcare are often consequences of discrimination.

In this interview, MRG's Director of Policy and Communications Carl Soderbergh outlines the key findings from the report and explains why ensuring the right to health for minorities and indigenous peoples is one of today's most pressing issues.
