Description

The Australian College of Nursing (ACN) and Maternal, Child and Family Health Nurses Australia (MCaFHNA) expressed their deep concerns regarding the health of children seeking asylum who are detained in offshore detention centres in their joint submission to the National Inquiry into Children in Immigration Detention. Both organisations agree that detention centres are inappropriate environments for children and that their experiences in the centres can have major detrimental effects on the children’s physical, social and mental wellbeing
