Abstract

The plight of the Rohingya people represents one of the key humanitarian issues of our time. This population, the largest stateless group in the world, has been persecuted within Myanmar, with many fleeing across the border to Bangladesh and to other countries. The study by Parveen Parmar and colleagues is particularly prescient given that Bangladesh has planned to stop accepting Rohingya migrants. Numerous eye-witness and case reports have emerged describing the degree of violence faced by the Rohingya, yet accurate estimates of overall mortality are largely missing. In this respect, we commend Parmar and colleagues on carrying out this study on mortality and violence, which will be of great importance to help document what has happened to the Rohingya people.
