Papua New Guinea : Health Services Sector Development Program (Second Additional Financing)

Sovereign Project | 51035-006

The original project investment aims to achieve a more sustainable and efficient health care system and included building two district hospitals (level 4) and six health centers (level 3), which would benefit more than 250,000 people living in remote areas. The first additional financing, through a cofinancing grant from the Government of Australia, expanded the scope of health facility upgrades, extending the network of rural health services to include one more health center and eight community health posts (CHPs) (level 2). The proposed second additional financing will scale up the project by (i) extending the network of rural health services to include an additional district hospital, (ii) improving diagnostic and regional surveillance capacity, and (iii) extending health workforce training.
