London, UK, April 30, migrants organize

Patients not Passports:

Challenging Far Right Policies in the NHS

Through successive immigration acts, the Government has introduced a border regime into the National Health Service. Migrants are now charged upfront to use the NHS, denied care when they cannot prove their eligibility or pay, and are having their sensitive data shared with immigration officials, making many afraid of seeking care altogether.

Join Docs Not Cops, Migrants Organise, Medact, and supporting organisations for the launch of the Patients Not Passports toolkit and learn how together we can bring down the Hostile Environment in the NHS.

Those affected by the policy, as well as healthcare workers and campaigners, will be on the platform. Speakers to be announced.

April 30, 6:30 pm
Meeting point: St Pancras New Church, Euston Rd, NW1 2 London

Westbank of Palestine, 3rd – 31st of August, 2019

The Refugee Camp Project

The Palestinian Refugee Camp Project, a four week summer program made possible by the generous donation from International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War, brings together medical students from around the world to experience life and healthcare in the West Bank. The first week of the program takes place in the university city of Abu Dis. Students learn about the history and politics of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict through university guest lectures, private presentations at governmental and non-governmental organizations and a diversity of museum tours. During the three remaining program weeks, in Bethlehem, students participate in medical internships of their choice, at one or multiple clinics or hospitals that serve the refugee camp populations. Throughout the project, participants will have a chance to experience Palestinian culture and hospitality and learn from student perspectives on the conflict. Each year, ReCaP is coordinated by former participants of the project in collaboration with student coordinators in Palestine.

Application deadline: April 21st, 2019 at 23:59 pm GMT.
