Subject: Measles epidemic among the Yanomami
I am extremely concerned at the measles epidemic affecting the Yanomami tribe on the Venezuela-Brazil border. The Yanomami have little immunity to this disease, and some remain uncontacted.
Although some measures have been taken to address the crisis, urgent medical care for the contacted Yanomami communities is desperately needed to prevent further deaths.
The disease has almost certainly been introduced by the thousands of gold miners operating illegally on Yanomami land. I urge you to take decisive action now to remove the miners and properly protect this land.
