New Ireland Provincial Health Authority

New Ireland PHA needs outlined

The project manager of the provincial health authority expressed their concerns in an interview today in Kavieng.

The project manager of the New Ireland Provincial Health Authority, Charlie Melachon, says the level 5 hospital of Kavieng still has some gaps to fill to effectively deliver services to the people.

Melachon stated that currently, eight beds have been reserved for paedeatric patients in the general ward, where he stressed that a level 5 health facility needs a separate structure to serve their younger patients.
