answer text <p>In January 2019 Public Health England, Public Health Wales, The Public Health Agency in Northern Ireland and Health Protection Scotland published the UK Measles and Rubella elimination strategy 2019. A copy is attached.</p><p>The strategy sets out four core components required to maintain elimination of measles and rubella: achieving and sustaining very high coverage (more than or equal to 95%) with two doses of measles, mumps and rubella vaccine (MMR) through the routine childhood immunisation programme; providing opportunities for MMR catch-up to all susceptible population groups over five years old; strengthening surveillance systems by rigorous case investigation and laboratory confirmation of suspected sporadic cases and outbreaks; and improving the availability and use of high-quality, evidence-based information for health professionals and the public on measles and MMR.</p><p>A multi-agency group has been established to take forward the actions in the strategy in England. Local teams including those in London are expected to work with local stakeholders to develop a measles and rubella elimination action plan.</p>
