Stories from Papua New Guinea

International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia (IDAHOT) was created in 2004 to draw the attention of policymakers, opinion leaders, social movements, the public and the media to the violence and discrimination experienced by lesbian, gay, bisexuals, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) people internationally. The Oil Search Foundation celebrated IDAHOT by conducting a ‘lunch and learn’ presentation in the Oil Search office in Port Moresby.

World AIDS Day is commemorated each year on 1 December. To commemorate this day, staff from the Oil Search Health Foundation participated in the Red Ribbon walk organised by the NCD Provincial AIDS Committee from the National AIDS Council Secretariat (NACS) and supported by business houses, various partners, stakeholders and the National Department of Health (NDoH).
