The Lancet and the Lowitja Institute join forces to develop a comprehensive report of the world’s Indigenous population.

The report developed by the Lancet and the Lowitja Institute includes data from 28 Indigenous populations from over 20 countries. This represents over 50% of the world’s Indigenous population with approximately 154 million Indigenous people .

The data was collated against eight key themes:

·         Population

·         Life expectancy

·         Infant mortality

·         Birth weight

·         Maternal mortality

·         Relative educational attainment

·         Relative poverty

·         Relative nutritional status.

The results have identified this report as the most comprehensive account of Indigenous and tribal health globally to date.
