Kaupa outlines health projects for electorate

While combating TB remains a key focus area for Port Moresby’s densely populated North-East electorate, addressing other health issues through different initiatives is equally important.

Local Member John Kaupa recently announced the health services improvement projects that will be initiated in the electorate.

Kaupa said he has started dialogue with the Health Minister to roll out satellite clinics in major settlement sites, and raise the standard of the current Six-Mile Clinic to district hospital status.

He also said major settlements will be subdivided to roll out essential social services for improved living standards.

Kaupa said discussions on these initiatives are ongoing with responsible government ministers and authorities to facilitate the process.

The proposed initiatives will complement the recently launched TB detection, treatment and prevention program.
