Dengue fever on Nauru

Dear Prime Minister,

What was the outcome of the crisis meeting between Australian Border Force, IHMS and the Nauruan government in February about the dengue fever outbreak on Nauru?

What is Australia doing to protect the health of the detainees, the refugees in the community, Australian staff and Nauruans?


For the 211th man on Manus Island

Dear Prime Minister,

On behalf of the 211th man on Manus Island and all prisoners of Australia's offshore detention regime, what urgent steps are you, the health minister and the immigration minister taking to protect all our prisoners on Nauru from the current outbreak of dengue fever? According to Guardian Australia

The Nauruan hospital was unprepared for the outbreak, and ... it has no testing kits for the disease.

There are more than 70 known cases of dengue fever on Nauru, including ten asylum seekers. Their health is our responsibility.
