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 leaflets
- Have information sharing sessions with the Traveller PHC Workers.
We are carrying out all 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.
