Strengthening preventative and curative health services for indigenous people

Improving health care for ethnic minorities

This strategy features in the framework of Agenda 21 as formulated at UNCED (Rio de Janeiro, 1992), now coordinated by the United Nations Commission on Sustainable Development and implemented through national and local authorities.

Agenda 21 suggests that services might be strengthened by resource and self-management preventative and curative health services.

Counter Claim:

Health officials may be wrong in their attempts to match healthcare, and especially drugs, with race because genetically there is no such thing as race in the human genome and so no such thing as race-based medicine.
