Australia happy with Health Programs in Papua New Guinea

The Enga provincial health programs in Papua New Guinea stand to receive more funding assistance from the Australian Government. This follows a visit to the provincial health facilities by a delegation from the Australian High Commission in Port Moresby last week.

The delegation led by team leader Kye Taylor, who is in charge of rural health and infrastructure division, said she was particularly happy with the Enga Provincial Government under the leadership of Governor Peter Ipatas for having a good working relation with the churches in delivering health services.

Accompanied by Governor Ipatas, the delegation visited specific health facilities including Enga School of Nursing, Kungumanda Community Health Workers College, Mambisanda Health Centre, Mendaiwan Health Services in Wapenamanda and the new Enga provincial health hospital site which is set be built next year.

Taylor said her team was happy with the unity and the fashion that the people had to develop health and other public service facilities in the province.

“Firstly, the health services development programs in the province will go a long way because the province has a good working relationship with the churches.
Secondly, the people have fashion and enthusiasm which are important qualities that are needed to developing important service oriented facilities in the community,” she said.

Taylor said the officials from a private Australian company, Health Education Procurement Facility (HEPF), who accompanied her on the trip, would put together a report before the Australian Government could consider funding specific programs in the province.

Governor Peter Ipatas said his government was happy to see the Australian delegates visiting his province to assist on his provincial government’s recurrent health service programs.

“I am happy to see officials from the Australian High Commission vesting our province. My Government is prepared to working with the Australian Government in improving health service in Enga,” he said.
