This chapter outlines the obstacles faced, and potential offered, by the post-2015 development framework for advancing the normative framework and commitments for indigenous women’s health in Latin America. An overview of the status of indigenous women’s health in the region is presented, as well as a brief analysis of current normative frameworks at global and regional levels that make reference to indigenous women´s health and the challenges of operationalising these frameworks in national legal frameworks. The chapter discusses how health goals for indigenous women may articulate with more generalized goals related to health, gender equality and women’s empowerment within the proposed new development framework to confront these challenges. It grapples with some of the complexities of including indigenous women’s health issues in the new framework in a meaningful way, as well as the particular potential offered by attention to the intersections between the goals, the related intersectoral action this implies, and the particular importance of the goals related to means of implementation, and particularly disaggregated data, for ensuring accountability.
