Underground Clinic for Undocumented Migrants

The denial of cheap and available healthcare for Sweden’s thousands of adult ayslum seekers and undocumented migrants has been widely debatted. For those needing non-emergency healthcare, both physiological and pyscholigical, doctors clinics at secret locations, staffed by volunteers, have proved a lifeline for those most vulnerable and unable to access health facilities used by Swedish residents.

Dave Russell spoke to Doctor Lotta Jansson, a GP, and volunteer with Doctors of the World, which runs a clinic at a secret Stockholm for undocumented migrants and first asked her, why she gave up her free time to work at the clinic.
