Dr. Nityasri S N will be presenting a seminar on the topic ‘Experience of health inequities among forest- dwelling tribal communities in Karnataka’.
The tribal communities in India are categorised as Scheduled Tribes. Forest-dwelling tribal communities in most parts of India prefer to be known as Adivasis. There have been descriptive studies about the nature and extent of health inequities among Adivasi communities, but there is a lack of understanding of the pathways and processes which lead to the inequities. Dr. Nityasri proposes tto study (as part of her PhD), the experiences of inequities among Adivasis. Using case studies, she proposes to develop a framework mapping the pathways of inequities among Adivasis in Karnataka.
