NAIROBI Friday, September 24, 2010 (IRIN) - In Kenya, minority ethnic groups risk lower immunization levels and higher under-five mortality rates.

In Latin America, children of indigenous origin are more likely to be undernourished – by between 1.6 and 2.5 times – than children of non-indigenous origin. These are just some of the examples of social exclusion and how it limits universal achievement of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
