Business PNG – Episode 7 Season 9, 2018

In this episode of the program, we look at the healthcare sector in Papua New Guinea, where it’s lacking and the ways in which the government and the private sector are working together to develop this pillar of society.

According to Dr. Paison Dakulala, the country’s health sector has a severe shortage of human resources.

The World Health Organization has stated that the country’s health workforce is characterized by an aging workforce, low numbers of midwives and community health workers; a demotivated workforce due to poor working conditions including low wages and poor physical infrastructure and insufficient training capacity to produce the number of health workers to meet population needs.

Also on this episode, we look at public and private partnerships in the health sector and how the Pacific International Hospital in Port Moresby, has become a beacon private healthcare provider.
