[Correspondence] Indigenous data matter: spotlight on Negev Bedouin Arabs

Several articles published in The Lancet in April focused directly or indirectly on the situation of Indigenous peoples. The Article by Ian Anderson and colleagues1 (July 9, p 131) on Indigenous peoples’ health highlighted gaps in the availability of data on key health and social indicators, in both the 23 countries included in their summary, and the 67 countries excluded due to insufficient data. In an Offline by Richard Horton,2 he described the predicament of the Negev Bedouin Arabs in southern Israel.
