More than one million Papua New Guinean children are no longer vulnerable to polio since a coordinated effort to control the spread of the disease that reemerged almost a year ago.
At the heart of the response to conduct a nationwide polio vaccination program, the National Department of Health (NDOH), with the support of country-based and international partners, drove a campaign implemented at the provincial level.
Oil Search Foundation (OSF) has funded the purchase of medical equipment worth K100,000 for the Nipa-Kutubu District Hospital that will open in July.
Oil Search is a company well recognised for its leadership and passion in development. Staff are proud to be part of an organisation that genuinely cares about them and their communities, like a family. As expressed by Managing Director, Peter Botten, “It’s part of our D.N.A. from the top down” and this is one of the drivers behind the Champions of Change program.
