End offshore detention #246

Dear Prime Minister,

IHMS has withdrawn its (inadequate, negligent) health services to the detainees on Manus Island. The detainees have ben told that Paradise Private Hospital in Port Moresby will be the new health care provider. Port Moresby is more than 800km from Manus Island. How can Paradise take over the health services on Manus Island from that distance, with less than one day's notice?

Hundreds of refugees are seriously sick and need medical treatment. We have a logical fear of our medical needs being neglected again.

What urgent action is the Australian government taking to ensure full health care to the detainees on Manus Island?

And what action is the Australian government taking to protect the detainees on Nauru from the current dengue fever outbreak?
