The Highlands Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation that has been providing equipment and training for hospitals and health care centres in the Highlands of Papua New Guinea since 2004. The Highlands Foundation was established by a number of Australian health care professionals in response to the poorly resourced health systems in PNG. The focus has been to develop partnerships with major hospitals in 5 provinces and utilise their local knowledge of the health care needs of their regions and then provide support in the form of necessary supplies and up to date education for health staff. Our main regions of aid so far have been to the Eastern Highlands, Western Highlands, Southern Highlands, The Sepik and Central Province.
