Abstract

Now that children have been removed from offshore immigration detention centres and with the Migration Amendment (Urgent Medical Treatment) Bill (2018) being passed into legislation, what can the healthcare community learn after over two decades of advocacy? Below we offer some reflections on the progress that has been made, including the medical community’s contribution to the reform of these policies and what we can learn for future action.
