initially art implementation is wrong but it is saying i think it because it is normalizing abdication of the us obligations towards asylum seekers and it is allowing the u.s. government as you say down asylum seekers and other countries without any guarantees that they will get a fair hearing and those countries was really shocking about this for all is that it is inconsistent with us i am a law it is inconsistent with international asylum law and so we are hopeful that the challengers will ultimately prevail but what unfortunate that in the meantime the concept that it is ok to dump asylum seekers other countries is becoming more and more normal and i thought the ball was president donald trump says john bolton's aggressive approach to north korea is a key reason why he fired his now former national security advisor trump says bolton had fallen out with senior aides and had made mistakes iran's leaders have

7:25 pm
a global vaccinations summit conference takes place at a time when countries around the world are facing outbreaks of preventable diseases due to a lack of adequate vaccination now many nations including malaysia considering making immunization compulsory for children finds that reports from calling them poor. this is a government clinic in malaysia where vaccinations are given free for 12 preventable major childhood diseases including measles diphtheria and polio immunization coverage has reached 95 percent but the program isn't mandatory and mohamed nor bin zakaria a father of 2 has chosen not to vaccinate his children i don't believe that although. i do believe the measles is not a deadly disease because if we look at the older generation how did they deal with it somehow we're treating all these diseases that have existed for a long time something that is so deadly and i believe that with good sanitation good hygiene good nutrition and existing information you can trade mazes at least
7:26 pm
for my child that's my personal stand but i don't go around telling parents not to vaccinate their kids. reasons cited by other parents for not vaccinating include concerns about possible adverse side effects and religious grounds this debate is taking place not only in malaysia but globally the world health organization has blamed vaccine misinformation as a major threat to global health saying it could reverse progress made in tackling preventable diseases one example is measles provisional data from the w.h.o. indicates the have been more measles cases reported worldwide in the 1st half of this year than in any year since 2006 the rise in measles cases is driven by poverty in some places but in more developed countries it's due to a growing wave of people who refuse immunization for their children in malaysia the health ministry says the number of anti vaccines as they're known is small but the government is considering a proposal to make certain vaccinations compulsory for children we all agree that
7:27 pm
our children must not be exposed to such unnecessary reese especially when there is vaccination available and it's free for the children in malaysia. as me and his wife expecting their 1st child next month and they've decided that they'll follow the national immunization shed you know interest but not protecting your child it's about protecting others as well because if we can ensure that every child can next be vaccinated. we might prevent all this. from spreading he says to deny that to any child would be irresponsible florence al-jazeera. well vaccines have been one of the biggest success stories of modern medicine the world health organization says it can debunk 6 common myths that's number one it says is that diseases began to disappear before vaccines were even
7:28 pm
introduced in the w.h.o. says the truth is there's little doubt of the significant impact vaccines have had 2nd myth when the majority of people who get disease diseases have been vaccinated in truth says the w.h.o. most vaccines are 85 to 95 percent effective next myth there are batches of vaccines more associated with adverse events and deaths than others the truth according to the w.h.o. vaccine botches and all the same and an adverse event doesn't mean the vaccine caused it next with back scenes cause many harmful side effects and even death the w.h.o. says the truth is vaccines are safe with only minor temporary effects myth number 5 vaccine preventable diseases have been virtually eliminated from my country so there is no need for my child to be vaccinated but the truth says the w.h.o. is that diseases could be brought in by travelers from other countries the final common if giving a child multiple vaccinations increases the risk of harmful side effects truth
7:29 pm
vaccines in combination have been proven to be safe and effective let's bring in derek gatherers of all the just and lecturer at lancaster university and glynn thank you very much indeed for your time sir why is there's so much distrust of vaccines. we really wish that we knew the answer to that and vaccine sentiments have been our own since vaccines were invented an 18th century by jenna but only recently have we seen a mass vaccination movement and it's probably to do with the social media that's become so important at the moment in the way that people get their news and we have something which is spreading very rapidly which is out of control of mainstream media it's out of control of normal government information channels we heard in florence louise report just. a gentleman called muhammad north he said i do believe
7:30 pm
missiles is not a deadly disease if we look at the older generation how did did a deal with that somehow we're treating all these diseases that have existed for a long time with something that is so deadly that seems like a very difficult perception to get round if you are determined to make sure that children are immunized. that is true yes when we had $84.00 notify dates in the european union last year from measles and historically death rates were much higher in the prefix nation days in 1980 there were 2 and a half 1000000 deaths worldwide from for measles and that's come right down into the 10s of thousands no largely as a result of the vaccination campaigns that have been ruled out saw the snow to to stick sort of on the side of the of the vaccines and the case for vaccination is or is overwhelmingly compelling but the problem is that we're finding it difficult to get that message out on the ground and vaccines conference taking place at the
7:31 pm
moment in belgium the u.s. surgeon general talked about how to meet with new york had been counteracted and he emphasized that it was through dealing with local community leaders and getting the message out to people who have trusted in in the affected communities that they were able to get more people to take up measles vaccine and thus bring the new york measles becomes a control so we have to operate through social media and community organization level in order to get the message to the people who who have been vaccinated the children it is a delicate balancing act isn't it because on the one hand the w.h.o. obviously feels that it is a necessity for vaccination programs to be carried out at the same time i would imagine it is you have to be cautious about rolling out a program and essentially steamrolling over cultural sensitivities as well that must be a tricky road to negotiate. yes that's true and
7:32 pm
there are some religious groups and groups of other special beliefs that that reject fights a nation but that can't really be the cause for the present we have a venti vaccination sentiment particularly in the in the european union which is sure it's not the most religious part of vote and yet anti-vaccination sentiment seems to be rising the april $21000.00 euro barometer showed that a boat 40 percent of people surveyed had vaccine skeptical opinions of one kind or another and a further 10 percent had had more reservations about vaccination without really being described this vaccine skeptics and fortunately that hasn't translated into actual facts emerge in behavior we still have orders of 85 percent of children in the european union are being vaccinated but if those beliefs that people clearly hold at least according to the unabomber to study to poor for 1st a tipping point into into active vaccine refusal then we will have
7:33 pm
a lot of problems on our hands especially regarding as you mentioned in your report measles which is one of the most infectious diseases norden and and will rapidly increasing numbers of folks nation drops even slightly really interesting to get your analysis of this very governor thank you very much indeed for your time sir thank you of course in the hague has acquitted a dutch doctor of all charges after she euthanized a patient with dementia the doctor gave a fatal dose of drugs to the 74 year old 3 years ago she said she was following the patient's well under consulted with the woman's family and other doctors but she was accused of failing to confirm consent if the nature is legal under dutch law if the patient suffering severely and wants to die. the us democratic party presidential candidates leading in recent polls will debate each other for the 1st time later on thursday well leaders joe biden elizabeth warren and bank saunders haven't shared the stage.
