This summary of selected communicable diseases among Indigenous people is one of a series in the Journal. The objective of the series is to provide statistical information about specific areas of Indigenous health. The series draws largely on published information, some of which may be reanalysed to provide clearer comparisons between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people.
