Description:
Studies in recent years clearly indicate that life expectancy and the general health status among the Travelling community compare significantly unfavourably to that of the settled community, while many of the factors, such as poor sanitation and poor and unsafe living conditions, which give rise to these problems lie outside the direct control of the health service. Travellers are a very important health development sector for our Board. We have developed a significant number of initiatives to meet their particular needs but a lot more needs to be done. Consequently, our Board welcomed the opportunity of piloting and developing a Primary Health Care Project for Travellers in partnership with Pavee Point.
