Medical Justice

Case study

 

Medical Justice is a charity working to protect the health and legal rights of immigration detainees.  Its aim is to expose and challenge medical mistreatment in immigration detention using casework combined with high quality research, policy advocacy and litigation. A small staff team is complemented by a network of over 40 volunteer doctors, lawyers, ex-detainees and campaigners.

 

JRCT contributes to the core costs of Medical Justice through its Rights and Justice programme.  The work fits at the heart of the Rights and Justice policy, protecting the human rights of the most vulnerable in society and challenging the roots of the abuse.
