Global and Refugee Health


What We’re Doing

AMSA Global Health is running a let them stay campaign – Crossing Borders – where we are all encouraged to write a letter to our local MPs in regards to the recent high court ruling on the government’s policy to return asylum seekers to offshore detention. The effects of being in an offshore detention center are indisputably harmful and lead to a multitude of heath problems in this highly vulnerable population.

– Although this is a campaign run by AMSA I’m sure students and other professionals from a variety of backgrounds could send the same letter (just by removing the AMSA and medical student part). The more people sending letters the better.
