A team of anthropologists, physicians, tribal leaders and local government authorities developed and implemented a multi-phase COVID-19 prevention and containment plan among the Tsimane, an indigenous group in the Bolivian Amazon. The researchers believe that their approach with the Tsimane can be adapted to tribal and aboriginal populations throughout the world to prevent widespread mortality. The study, published in The Lancet, is led by Hillard Kaplan, professor of health economics and anthropology at Chapman University.
