A great day for refugee health care: CARL cheers Liberal government announcement restoring the Interim Federal Health Program
This is the long awaited end to a four year grassroots campaign and legal battle to restore fairness, compassion, and reason to refugee health policy in Canada. CARL wishes to thank the Canadian Doctors for Refugee Care, the 20 national health organizations that endorsed their campaign, the CARL litigation team and all the volunteers who have offered support and provided countless hours of volunteer time to this issue.
We wish also to thank the Liberal government, including Ministers McCallum and Philpott, who have resolutely committed to restoring important health coverage for refugees, and all those Liberal and New Democratic Party MPs who have tirelessly advocated on this issue.
It is a proud day to be Canadian.
