Journal of Disease and Global Health,
One of the most significant challenges facing humans is the preservation of health; governments invest large amounts of money to provide health services throughout their territory; however, health inequalities and social inequities as social determinants of health negatively impact indigenous populations, emphasizing their epidemiological vulnerability and the risk of premature death. They face a significant health emergency of impact such as the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic that has been causing since December 2019 when it appeared in Wuhan in Hubei province, China. The main focus of this work is to evaluate the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic by analyzing the records of the Epidemiological Surveillance System for Respiratory Diseases (SISVER), from January to July 2021, in contrast to the poverty indicators registered by the National Council for the Evaluation of Social Development Policy (CONEVAL) related to 2018, as well as the social determinants of health that impact the indigenous Zapotec communities of the Tehuantepec Isthmus, in the state of Oaxaca, México.
Objectives: To provide a descriptive analysis of social determinants of health in the indigenous population impacted by COVID-19 from January to July 2021.
