“One shoe fits all” approach is leaving indigenous peoples behind

The “one shoe fits all” approach to health and well-being means that indigenous peoples have poorer access to appropriate health care than other groups in their respective countries.

That’s according to Dr Pricilla Migiro, a paediatrician from the Masaai ethnic group in Kenya.

Many Masaai people live in remote regions so have problems accessing health and other services.

Dr Migiro is currently in New York and met with Siobhán Garside to discuss her contribution to the 2nd Volume of the “State of the World’s Indigenous Peoples” report.
