Australian emergency tent taken down as epidemic wanes

One of the Australian Medical Assistance Team's emergency tents in front of the national hospital was taken down on Saturday - and the team who have been using it to treat measles patients for the past month could not be more pleased. 

The tent being disassembled does not signal the end of Australian medical assistance to Samoa (their doctors and nurses were the first foreign country to begin providing assistance after arriving on November 6) but rather the changing nature of the measles epidemic.
