Medical Providers Network

NYLPI seeks to attack the human rights crisis in immigration detention through a multi-pronged program, including a medical-legal-community partnership. Essential to this advocacy is NYLPI’s Medical Providers Network. The Medical Providers Network (MPN)  is a growing network of professionals who help people in immigration detention with serious healthcare needs. NYLPI receives referrals from legal and community partners requesting connection to a medical provider. NYLPI then swiftly connects a volunteer to the client and advocate to develop medical advocacy letters, visit clients in detention facilities, conduct in-person consultations or medical interviews, or provide testimony for cases. The power of our volunteer’s expert se can be a force of change and is used in advocacy for better care while detained, requests for release, and in underlying immigration cases.This medical-legal-community partnership is supported by more than 155 volunteers who are dedicated to raising awareness of conditions in immigration detention in medical spaces.
