Foundation working to assist PNG hospitals

This follows a memorandum signed early last month between a US-based non-governmental organization MedShare.

The Foundation is US based and is headed by a Papua New Guinean living in the US. Its aim is to assist PNG hospitals and health centers by supplying medical supplies and equipment to Papua New Guinea at lower prices.

Nuigini Foundation CEO and founder James Kisa said with the financial help from them and in partnership with their United States partner MedShare, they can now do a “supply only”.
