Anyone who has been to a major hospital or health centre in PNG will report of the obvious lack of supplies to deliver health care. Nurses, midwives and health care workers in Papua New Guinea have the difficult task of providing lifesaving services with bare minimum resources.
The Health Kits Project gives health care workers essential tools to be able to care for women during pregnancy and birth in remote area. The items in the Kit are listed below.
We would be grateful for the donation of any of these items to complete our packs and send them to hard working health care workers in remote areas of PNG.
