Manus refugees deprived of beds and medical care

About 400 refugees were forced to give up their three-week protest last week by Papua New Guinea police, who moved the men to three facilities in the island's main town.

Sudanese refugee Abdul Aziz Adam is one of about 25 men unable to find a bed in the new facilities that pictures show is still under construction, despite Australian government claims to the contrary.

"For myself it’s been 48 hours I couldn't find a place to sleep," Mr Adam said on Sunday.

Headaches, what's causing them?

A headache is one of the most common health-related conditions globally and it is likely all of us will experience a headache in their lifetime. People of any age can be affected, but people between the ages of 25 and 44 years are more likely to report having a headache.

Most headaches have more than one contributing factor. Some of the more common triggers for a headache are lifestyle-related, such as poor diet, stress, muscle tension, and lack of physical activity and pain can range from mild to severe.
