The United Nations Human Rights Committee (UNHRC) recently issued a landmark decision condemning Canada for denying access to essential health care on the basis of immigration status based on the case of Nell Toussaint. In light of this UN decision, over 1500 individuals and 80 organizations have signed onto an open letter addressed to the federal government, leading to widespread media coverage. You can read the letter at healthcareformigrants.com. The UN has given Canada 180 days to respond to the UN decision which ends in February.
This is a public event open to students, physicians, professionals, as well as caring community members. Please feel free to share and spread the word!
