These types of health centres, dotted around the country, are run by dedicated nurses and aids who, in the more isolated areas of PNG often have to work without the proper equipment and drugs.
The Catholic Church is this area does a lot for the health of the locals and runs the Vunapope Hospital (Haus sik) which provides affordable health care for everyone. It is run by hard-working doctors (doktas) (usually volunteers from Australia and Germany) and local nurses (nes).
We raise our hats to you all!!!!
I flew to Lae last Saturday for work (will be back 3 May), so will be leaving you in the confident hands of He-Who-Doesn't-Blog and Benson (the Boy Cat). Hopefully they will remember to post every other day and keep their feet off the coffee table!!!!
