In light of the current measles cases and HSE alert  a number of actions were undertaken by Pavee Point. Traveller Primary Health Care Projects in areas where recent measles cases were found were advised on actions to take:

  • measles awareness sessions in the community

  • print and distribute HSE measles leaflet

  • have information sharing sessions with the Traveller PHC Workers.

We are carrying out all of the above with our own Traveller Primary Health Care Project.  As part of that a measles awareness session was delivered in-house for Pavee Point staff on the 9th November.
