Minister for Health and HIV

New academic building for nursing school

Health Secretary Pascoe Kase and Australian High Commissioner, Bruce Davis, opened the new academic building at the Lae School of Nursing today.

The major infrastructure upgrade support valued at approximately K25 million is part of the ANGAU Hospital redevelopment project, an initiative under the Joint Understanding between the governments of Papua New Guinea and Australia.

Funding secured for medical supplies

This is the biggest ever investment in medical supplies and distribution system.

But this funding will be spent in accordance with an agreed 2 year procurement plan that Minister for Health and HIV, Sir Puka Temu will consider.

Minister Temu said Area Medical Stores are an important part of the medical supplies system.

He stressed this during the launch of the 100 percent Medical Kit Supplies (MSK) to the Badili Area Medical Store on Thursday.

Temu noted the Badili AMS refurbishment of K1.5 million, as evident to that commitment by the government.
