CD47-13 Health of the Indigenous Peoples of the Americas

This document lays out PAHO’s strategy to promote indigenous health over a period of five years. Four strategic lines of action are proposed: (a) To ensure incorporation of indigenous perspectives into the attainment of the MDGs and national health policies; (b) To improve information and knowledge management on indigenous health issues to strengthen regional and national evidence-based decision-making and monitoring capacities; (c) To integrate the intercultural approach into the national health systems of the Region as part of the primary health care strategy; and (d) To develop strategic alliances with indigenous peoples and other key stakeholders to further advance the health of the indigenous peoples.
