Cancer management

Cancer management must take holistic approach

PNG National Doctors Association president Dr James Naipao says the setup of cancer treatment facilities must not be done at one location.

For PNG’s case, the only public health cancer treatment facility is located in Lae, Morobe Province, at the Angau General Hospital.

Naipao said this type of treatment facility must be established in the Southern, Highlands and New Guinea Islands regions as well and the Government and Department of Health must make that a priority.
