Minority Rights Group International

Working to secure the rights of minorities and indigenous peoples

Our latest report will be a vital resource for health workers, human rights activists, polio experts, researchers and United Nations health campaigns seeking to understand the need for intercultural health policies in Somalia and the need to prioritise the demands of displaced minority groups.

Who we are

Minority Rights Group International (MRG) campaigns worldwide with almost 300 partners in 60 countries to ensure that disadvantaged minorities and indigenous peoples, often the poorest of the poor, can make their voices heard.

Through our action, we support minorities and indigenous peoples as they strive to defend their rights.
