NCIRS Seminar Series - Tuesday 18 February 2020


The global increase in measles cases in 2019, coupled with the tragic outbreak in Samoa and the ongoing importation of measles into Australia, demonstrates the devastating impact of this highly infectious disease on the community. 

In this seminar, our key speaker Professor David Durrheim, an international measles expert, will provide an update on the situation globally, as well as the latest vaccination recommendations.

We will then hear from Dr Blessy John-Denny about her experience responding to the measles outbreak in Samoa, and the clinical and health system impacts involved. 

Join us for this first NCIRS Seminar/Webinar for 2020 as we discuss the public health implications of measles, how to protect our community and learn from regional and global experiences.
