In the case of arthritis in indigenous populations, it is clear that a health disparity exists. However, given that arthritis represents a heterogeneous group of conditions without clear modifiable risk factors at the population level, the public health implications of a high burden of arthritis are not as obvious as for conditions such as obesity, diabetes, and tobacco-related disorders. Recommendations for improvement in this disparity will depend on future research, needed both to elucidate the underlying causes of the disparity in overall burden of arthritis and to explore the reasons for under-utilization of specialist care in these populations.
