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.
