India has 28% of the global tribal and indigenous population. They play a crucial role in the conservation of nature. Yet their state of health is a matter of concern. A tribal individual in India has a life expectancy of about 4 years lower than the general population. 10.4% of the total notified tuberculosis (TB) are from tribal communities.
To fulfil India’s commitment to achieving Global Goals, it is essential to improve the general health and well-being of tribal populations.
Anamaya is a multi-stakeholder collaborative committed to ending preventable deaths among tribal and marginalised communities of India. Our multidisciplinary team engages with problems unique to tribal communities to co-create solutions that strengthen communities and public delivery systems alike.
