The Southern Highlands is on track to become one of Papua New Guinea’s health performers by the end of 2019.
Accident and emergency health services at the Hela Provincial Hospital have been boosted with PGK 1 million funding from the Hela Provincial Government and a further PGK 8 million from Santos Limited, Oil Search Foundation, and a personal donation from Peter Botten, Hela PHA Chair and Oil Search Managing Director. The Australian government is also supporting an upgrade to the hospital’s electricity.
Disaster preparedness saves lives.
Oil Search Foundation, which supported the relief effort in Hela and the Southern Highlands following the devastating earthquake which hit the region last February, knows this well.
