[Editorial] Indigenous health in the Latin American golden decade

In 2006, a Lancet Series on Indigenous health highlighted alarming inequalities in health outcomes for Indigenous people in Latin America. Indigenous morbidity and mortality was higher, and indigeneity was identified as a proxy indicator of poverty, against which health disparities could be measured. Now, a decade later, the World Bank reports that although more than 70 million people have been lifted out of poverty in this so-called golden decade, Indigenous people have been left behind.
