State of the World's Minorities and Indigenous Peoples 2013: Interview with South Asia author

Alternative content

Minorities and indigenous peoples suffer more ill-health and receive poorer quality of care, says MRG in its 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, report author Farah Mihlar provides an overview of the issues facing minorities and indigenous communities in Asia.
