COVID-19 demonstrates the harm of exclusion to healthcare
Beatrice Lau, Head of Mission, Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) in Malaysia (aka Doctors Without Borders)
Existing laws in Malaysia that require healthcare workers to report “illegal immigrants” to the authorities, have been a barrier for many undocumented migrants seeking critical early Covid-19 screenings. This has put not only themselves in danger, but society at large too. We discuss why such laws need to be urgently repealed, for the benefit of all.
