To the Editor: We read with interest the recent perspective written by doctors from International Health and Medical Services (IHMS).1 They state that regular visits to Nauru by specialists, including paediatricians, deliver care “commensurate with that in Australian communities”. The IHMS doctors also state that “We encourage informed commentary and debate among the public and the medical profession”. As specialist paediatricians who recently visited Nauru for IHMS, we disagree with both these statements.
