Statement regarding medical services provided by the Australian Government in Nauru

The removal of Médecins Sans Frontières from Nauru is a matter for the Government of Nauru.

The Department of Home Affairs takes seriously its role in supporting the Government of Nauru to ensure that transferees are provided with a range of health, welfare and support service arrangements. This has not changed.

Through the Australian Government's contracted health services provider, International Health and Medical Services, general practitioner, nursing and mental health care clinics are open seven days a week. There is also after-hours medical staffing to respond to after-hours medical emergencies.

As at 11 October 2018, there are 65 contracted health professionals, including 33 mental health professionals providing services to transferees on Nauru.

All transferees on Nauru are free to move around the island; they are not in detention.
