Categories: Latin America, Brazil, Citizen Media, Health, Indigenous

Alda Inacio [1] [pt] is revolted by a piece of news that shows how the the many indigenous peoples of Brazil are dying of hepatitis B and other diseases spread by the white man, and by the lack of resources to deal with it. “What happens in Brazil is pure negligence, and when a piece of news like that comes out it is because the situation is out of control”.
