June 19, 2013

On Monday, Montreal-based health care professionals gathered to protest the federal government's cuts to refugee care. In June 2012, the federal government made drastic changes to the Interim Federal Health Program for refugees and asylum claimants. The ensuing tiered-system has been criticized by health care organizations all over Canada for being dangerous and unjust towards a vulnerable population of asylum-seekers.
Although the government of Quebec has stepped in to absorb the costs of some of conditions that are not covered, refugee health care has been irreparably stigmatized and there remain widespread obstacles for refugees to access care for life-threatening conditions.
In this episode we cover highlights from the Day of Action;  Rafiya speaks with David Woodbury, psychologist and activist; and we hear from Gabrielle Inglis about the Day of Action that took place concurrently in Hamilton, Ontario. 
More detailed information on the system and links to more information can be found on the IFMSA's website here or at
