• Impact of the UK immigration system on the health and wellbeing of Africans in the UK

Posted Date: 23rd Mar 2012

On Thursday 29 March, The African Health Policy Network is holding an event in collaboration with the Human Rights Pro Bono Unit of BPP Law School, to explore the impact of the UK immigration system on the health and well being of Africans in the UK. The event will launch a new research report from the AHPN investigating the treatment of detainees in Immigration Removal Centres. The research found that interruptions to treatment, care and support for existing health conditions are rife in the system, with a serious corresponding impact on the health, mental health and well being of individuals affected. Speakers will include researchers as well as individuals who have previously been detained, who will share their stories of the detrimental impact of detention on their health.


The event will be held from 6:30pm to 8.30pm, in the lecture theatre of BPP Holborn campus: 1 Procter Street,

Holborn, London, WC1V 6DW. For a map, please see: http://www.bpp.com/locations/-/loc/holborn.
