The Enga Provincial Government is working closely with the PNG Tribal Foundation to fully equip all its hospitals and health centers in the next 4 years.
Enga Governor, Peter Ipatas, presented a cheque worth K200 thousand to the foundation today, to assess all the health facilities in the province and make necessary purchases.
The foundation will engage its health partners from the United States of America in the next 3 months to carry out assessments in Enga before shipping in the needed equipment.
The PNG Tribal Foundation’s goal is to be PNG’s premiere, most productive and effective foundation with a reputation for accountability.
The Foundation is made up of a group of people who are passionate about working to provide answers to Papua New Guinea’s health and education needs.
It works in partnership with government, private organizations, corporations, and individuals to support and implement projects that they believe will produce lasting results.
Two of their key partners from the US are Project CURE and Heart to Heart International.
One of their committed government entities is the Enga provincial government.
The provincial government is also focused on getting the construction work to begin on the new general hospital and other nursing colleges. The new hospital is valued at K300 million.
The national government has committed K100 million every year to get this vital infrastructure operational.
Governor, Peter Ipatas, said besides education and other key priorities, health will be given special attention this year.
He is confident such non-governmental organizations have the capability, efficiency and management to implement important services.
Following the presentation of the K200 thousand cheque today, the US team will be engaged in the province in the next 3 months to make assessments of various health facilities in the 5 districts; Wabag, Wapenamanda, Lagaip – Pogera, Kompiam – Ambum and Kandep.
The foundation has delivered two 40 foot containers of medical equipment to Enga Province in the last 2 years.
This cheque presentation today will see 2 more containers of medical equipment such as beds and chairs delivered to the health centres in Enga by mid this year. This excludes medicine.
