Our Mission

Medical Justice works to uphold the health and associated legal rights of people in immigration detention, and provides medical evidence so the devastating health harms of detention are understood and acted on.

The values which guide us :

COMMON HUMANITY. We work for and with people in detention, treating them with respect and empathy.

We recognise we cannot achieve change on our own so collaborate with the like-minded.

We produce only evidence and facts to make our case as we believe those speak for themselves.

We are outraged by the ongoing injustice to our fellow humans within immigration detention.

ANTI-RACIST. We regard many systems as inherently racist and work to challenge racism in all we do.

We believe we do and can achieve change both for individuals and for our society.

We will not cease until we achieve our vision
