Australia has very strict health requirements on applicants for permanent residency. These should not necessarily be applied to refugees. For many reasons refugees may be expected to have a greater burden of illness. We should aim to help them through these problems before making a final assessment of their "health checks".

How awful that private citizens should be having to lead the way. I thought that's what we elected 'leaders' for. But since they're mostly a useless, self-centred bunch initiatives like this have become essential. Love the humanity embodied in this document.
193. Phil Reynolds, Lismore Rural Australians for Refugees, Kyogle NSW
I endorse this discussion paper wholeheartedly.
194. John Allan, Lismore NSW
In signing this petition I assert that people have a right to be treated with dignity and compassion. As this is also attested to by many international covenants for the great mass of humanity, it is even more valid for those seeking refuge from violation of said rights.
