Health Disparities: Indigenous Populations


  • Indians
  • Central American
  • Indians, North American
  • Indians, South American
  • Inuits
  • Pacific Islander
  • "American Native Continental Ancestry Group"
  • Alaskan Native

Combine the above terms with terms like these:

  • disparities
  • "health status"
  • "quality of health care"
  • "health services accessibility"
  • "health equity"


**Please note that language describing Indigenous Peoples is from a Western Colonizer mindset meaning that specific tribal names, lands and places are broadly lumped together without distinction.
