A’uwẽ-Xavante in Brazil are particularly at risk for COVID-19 because of high rates of diseases that represent significant co-morbidity factors. Studies indicate that A’uwẽ-Xavante have the highest incidence of diabetes of any ethnic group in Brazil. They also have a high incidence of tuberculosis. Closing highways BR-070 and BR-158 to commercial transport would significantly reduce the potential exposure risk for A’uwẽ-Xavante and Boe-Bororo who live along and travel these heavily trafficked highways.

Xavante Warã Association is requesting financial support for community-led emergency actions making masks, as well as for food, and medication, to be distributed to A’uwẽ-Xavante communites.
