BASIC HEALTH CARE – PETER O’NEILL’s SPEECH AT NATIONAL RESEARCH INSTITUTE – April 6, 2017
The PM said the PNC led government would continue to build hospitals throughout the country.
“We must continue to build specialist hospitals in the major regions of the country,” he said.
He said PNC and its coalition government would continue to invest in these hospitals and provide better health care.
“Today our government is the only government that is funding hospitals directly without having to give hospital funding to the health department,” he said.
Amongst the latest developments with health care in the country, the PM made reference to Modillon Hospital in Madang where the national government funded the construction of four new operating theatres.
