Japan gives K10.6m for PNG COVID-19 response

This grant will be contributed to PNG through the United nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF).

It is part of a US$9.09 million (K35 million) grant from Japan to Pacific Island countries, including PNG.

This is to provide the region with cold chain equipment (CCE), including medical equipment such as cold-storage facilities and transportation, as “last one mile” support to ensure vaccination in each country.
