You are focusing on the Mururoa tests.
I don't believe there is any "evidence for health impacts from those tests."
But there were also earlier tests in Algeria.
Here the issue is much less clear.
Specifically, one article I read said, "Morin identified several [tests] where radiation was not completely confined, singling out the test of 1 May 1962, when powerful radioactive fallout was found to have fallen as far as 150 km from the test site in the Algerian Sahara."
Hope this helps.

Does anyone know what is behind the recent French decision to compensate
people exposed to the Mururoa tests 10 years ago? Is there any evidence
for health impacts from those tests?
