IMPROVING ACCESS TO HEALTHCARE FOR BRISTOL MIGRANTS
Conference: Weds 25th May, 10am - 4pm
The Migrant Rights Centre Bristol is launching a drive to improve access to healthcare for Bristol’s migrant communities. Working with local GPs and migrant charities, the Migrant Rights Centre hopes to raise awareness of available health services and increase the accessibility of primary healthcare to all migrants.
To launch the campaign, MRCB is inviting Bristol GPs and other health professionals to participate in a free policy discussion and training event at the Pierian Centre in which will focus on increasing accessibility of primary healthcare to migrants in Bristol. The aim of the seminar will be to discuss healthcare issues and to develop common good practice across the regional area.
Anyone interested in this campaign or in the work of the Migrant Rights Centre Bristol can email firstname.lastname@example.org
ZIMBABWE: YEARS OF HOPE AND DESPAIR
Wednesday 1st June, 6.30 for 7pm
Book Launch: Philip Barclay
The Bristol Zimbabwe Association invites you to a Book Launch and Q&A’s with Philip Barclay, author of Zimbabwe: Years of Hope and Despair. As a diplomat Philip was at the centre of the tumultuous events of Zimbabwe's 2008 election. A majority voted against Robert Mugabe, but their desire for change was denied as vicious squads of indoctrinated youths launched a campaign of murder, rape and destruction. Philip’s electrifying account records the violent excesses of a hated clique prepared to do anything to cling to power. More details here
