The purpose of this report is to provide a more detailed understanding of the context of each population included in a paper published by The Lancet in April 2016, ‘Indigenous and Tribal Peoples’ Health (The Lancet–Lowitja Institute Collaboration): A population study’ by I. Anderson, B. Robson, M. Connolly et al.

Contributors have endeavoured to provide a summary of the history, culture, legal and political status as well as socio-demographic factors of each Indigenous or Tribal group. Unfortunately the political situation in some countries has meant that in some cases authors have not been able to include important facts pertaining to their Indigenous peoples.
