Australian High Commissioner to Papua New Guinea Bruce Davis

K10 million grant for new health facilities

Funding for the facility was made possible through the Incentive Fund, a partnership between the Governments of Australia and Papua New Guinea.

The 30-bed facility, to be called the Supportive Living Centre, will offer palliative care for terminally ill people and high quality care for the critically ill. It will also develop a support system to assist families to care for their terminally ill relatives at home.

​Aussie envoy happy with use of funds

Davis was speaking during the ground breaking ceremony of K6.7 million students’ mess and a dormitory construction at the Enga College of Nursing, Enga Province, last week.

He said he was particularly happy with the Enga Provincial Government, under the leadership of Governor Sir Peter Ipatas, because he was investing in education and health. These were his government’s priority partnership programs in Papua New Guinea.
