AMA Calls for Hazara Man to be Brought From Nauru for Palliative Care
The AMA today called on the Federal Government to bring an Afghan refugee with advanced lung cancer from Nauru to Australia for palliative care.
AMA President, Dr Tony Bartone, said the AMA understands that the required treatment is not able to be provided on Nauru and that the 63-year-old man, known as Ali, should be moved to Australia.
“Ali is a member of the persecuted Hazara minority in Afghanistan and has been formally recognised as a refugee,” Dr Bartone said.
