    Porirua medical volunteers are heading to Samoa to help with the measles outbreak


    Provider Pacific Health Plus is sending two staff to help administer measles vaccinations and relieve clinical staff.

    Director Lee Pearce says all their patients have links across the Pacific.

    She says it's important they maintain those links and this is their little effort to contribute.

    The World Bank's also committed 3.5 million US dollars to support the measles emergency response.
