Angau

ANGAU’s new TB ward

The new ward will provide 26 beds to treat tuberculosis cases in a modern facility, leading to improved patient outcomes.

“ANGAU is creating the benchmark for large-scale, joint health infrastructure projects in Papua New Guinea,” said High Commissioner Philp.

“A healthy population is a productive population, and this will drive economic development and help build this great nation.”

Health Minister pleased with ANGAU’s progress

He was there to view the progress and reiterate the Papua New Guinea Government’s commitment to the project.

“I am pleased to see the progress of this impressive and significant infrastructure project, which promises to provide high quality health care for communities throughout the Momase Region,” said Minister Wong.

“Once completed, ANGAU will be the major regional referral hospital and a significant national asset for Papua New Guinea for decades to come.”

Govt set record with national healthcare plan

In a statement, Prime Minister Peter O’Neill said more than K6 billion is invested each year to improve healthcare.

“While we still have a lot of work to do, universal healthcare is becoming a reality around Papua New Guinea,” stated the PM.

“The amount of money a person has in their pocket should not determine if they can see a doctor or receive healthcare.

“Over the past five years, working with our partners, including churches, we have expanded medical services to remote areas and rebuilt hospitals.
