Health kits

Contractors’ lack of commitment appalling

Yesterday in parliament, Sungi asked the Health Minister to clarify the terms of these contracts.

Sungi raised this issue in parliament after the contractor engaged to deliver medical supplies to Vanimo Hospital in West Sepik Province abandoned the kits at Wewak, East Sepik Province.

Health Minister Sir Puka Temu in response said this should not be the case.

He said logistics contractors should deliver directly to the health facilities, even in rural aid posts.
