Plans afoot for Central Province Hospital

Minister for Planning and Monitoring, Richard Maru, says the Government has set aside funding for the project.

The 400-bed hospital project, which was announced in February 2016 and endorsed by the provincial government, is now being fast tracked by the Government.

Minister Maru said the move is to lessen the demand on the Port Moresby General Hospital, which is expected to be upgraded.

Hospitals for all districts!

Minister for Planning and Monitoring, Richard Maru, announced this on Friday.

Maru said the Government will make it their business to build a hospital in every district so that people receive the basic health services they deserve.

Minister Maru reiterated the Government’s commitment to health, saying the ambitious plan is possible with the help of development partners.

He said this during the signing of two financing agreements for the Rural Primary Health Service Delivery project and the Boram Hospital upgrade in East Sepik Province.
