To continuously seek ways to make practical, high impact contributions towards sustainable improvements in the health care standards in Papua New Guinea and the South Pacific Region. Through effective partnership with local health professionals, experts and academics we can identify areas in health where there is greatest potential in improving the health status of the majority of the people. This could be through – health education, public health policy creation and implimentation, practical outreach projects and working in collaberation with many existing organisation already working at the coal face.
“For if medicine is really to accomplish its great task, it must intervene in political and social life. It must point out the hindrances that impede the normal social functioning of vital processes, and effect their removal” (Rudolf Ludwig Karl Virchow, 1849)
