PNG health partners farewell Dr Pavlin

Pavlin departed Papua New Guinea this Saturday, March 18 to work at the WHO headquarters in Geneva.

Dr. Pavlin, who has been with the WHO Papua New Guinea office for the last five years, has worked closely with the National Department of Health (NDoH) and has been pivotal in establishing the Field Epidemiology Training (FET) for Papua New Guinea, which to date has produced over 45 field epidemiologists.

This training program is supported by the WHO, the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT), Hunter New England Health, and CDC.
