An Integrated Approach to Controlling Tuberculosis in Indigenous Populations (Cochabamba, Bolivia, 23-24 October 2007)
Latin America is characterized as being a multi-ethnic and multi-cultural region of great diversity, with more than 650 indigenous populations. Indigenous peoples' right to health is limited by a series of obstacles to care, for which reason their rates of morbidity and mortality from prevalent diseases are higher than among the general population. To overcome these barriers, there is a need to study them and identify specific control strategies and care models that will work in places where health systems have yet to reach, with the ultimate objective of reducing the risk of illness and death. This page offers a summary, the recommendations, and the full-text report in Spanish.(24/Oct/2007)
