Hawaiian Medical staffs

70 Hawaiian medical staff help Samoa vaccination campaign

 A team of 55 nurses and 15 doctors will help to administer the measles vaccine and help tend to those already infected.

 The delegation is being led by Hawaii’s Lieutenant-Governor Josh Green, a doctor with a background in emergency room medicine.

 Last week the United States provided hundreds of thousands of dollars of USAID funding for immediate assistance.

 USAID’s Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance and the World Health Organisation are helping to coordinate the international teams supporting Samoa’s measles response.
