The National Traveller and Roma Inclusion Strategy (NTRIS) contains a set of specific actions aimed at improving the situation for Traveller and Roma communities in Ireland.
Recommendation 73 of the NTRIS states that:
The Health Service Executive will develop and implement a detailed action plan, based on the findings of the All Ireland Traveller Health Study, to continue to address the specific health needs of Travellers, using a social determinants approach.
The HSE circulated a draft of the health action plan to stakeholders in March. I am advised that the HSE is currently considering the feedback received with a view to producing a final draft of the action plan as soon as possible.
I look forward to receiving the HSE action plan.
