The major accomplishment for 2007 was the completion of the Dukha Health Data Base, with detailed health information on almost 300 individuals. This has shown patterns of hypertension (high blood pressure) and anemia (low blood iron levels) which may well underlie many of the Dukha adults' serious health problems. These include heart failure and muscle weakness.
The report and analysis are forthcoming.
