In a move to free up more money to fund essential HIV and TB services for the 2018-2020 funding cycle, in-country principle recipients (PRs) implementing for the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (which includes the Oil Search Foundation (OSF), will undergo consolidation starting from 2018.
The Oil Search staff-led tuberculosis (TB) food drive for the Kikori Hospital in the Gulf Province has received overwhelming support. The donations included 190 kilograms of rice, 7 cartons of noodles, 6 boxes of biscuits, 7 cartons of tinned food, 5 litres of cooking oil, and 70 packs of laundry detergent. Program Supervisor for the Oil Search Foundation, Chris’bourne Taput, officially handed over the food donations to Hospital Administrator, Mr. Larry Kaipu. The donations highlighted the importance of building on the existing partnerships to continuously strengthen support and deliver patients with the care and management they need.
Last week a delegation of representatives from the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, the National Department of Health, the Global Fund’s PNG Country Coordinating Mechanism, World Vision, Populations Services International and the Oil Search Foundation visited Mt Hagen and Goroka.
