Sydney: Health Forum: End Off-Shore Detention

24 November 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Join the Amnesty NSW Refugee Network for a discussion on the escalating health crisis in offshore detention. Many are now aware of the horrific state of healthcare in Nauru and Manus, particularly in terms of the dissociative resignation syndrome experienced by children. Whilst our government has claimed that all children and their families will be brought to Australia by the end of the year, this forum is a call to end offshore detention full stop.

Speakers:
Prof Kerryn Phelps
 AM
Behrouz Boochani (via video link)
Dr Kean-Seng Lim (NSW AMA President)
Prof David Isaacs (RACP paediatrician & Nauru whistleblower)
Dr Karen Zwi ( RACP paediatrician & spokesperson)
Dr Barri Phatarfod (Doctors4Refugees)
Ian Rintoul (Refugee Action Coalition)
