Public Forum, UTS Ultimo" Nauru's Medical Emergency

Speakers:
KATIE SHAFAR, former nurse on Nauru

Katie worked on Nauru in late 2015 and has subsequently become a regular detention visitor
ANNA TALBOT, National Justice Project lawyer
Anna is helping run legal action that has successfully brought children on Nauru to Australia for medical treatment

Nauru is in meltdown with an escalating medical and mental health crisis as a result of the damage done by offshore detention. Despite Border Force trying to fight doctors’ recommendations in court, almost 30 children have been brought off the island, some after spending weeks refusing to eat. Many of the 1000 asylum seekers and refugees who remain on Nauru are barred from US
resettlement and are losing hope. Join us to hear first hand accounts of the crisis on Nauru..
