ADI working on the frontline in PNG during COVID-19

NGOs can be some of the first and most effective responders to help PNG’s health system and workforce prepare for and respond to COVID-19. Australian Doctors International have been an integral part of a coordinated response to the developing health situation in PNG. You can find all the latest news from ADI as it happens on our COVID-19 webpage.

MP Zali Steggall thanks ADI

The Australian Government’s Pacific Step-up program assists in developing relationships between Australian businesses and investors in the Pacific supporting infrastructure projects in the region which have a flow-on social and economic benefit. In a recent address to parliament, MP Zali Steggall spoke of a reallocation of some funds to COVID-19 response, making specific reference to the work of ADI: “I would particularly like to acknowledge the work of Australian Doctors International, based in Seaforth in Warringah, who are working with businesses and governments in Papua New Guinea to prepare their health system and communities for the pandemic as well as their usual work. As of June 2020, ADI reached an estimated 40,000 beneficiaries in remote and rural areas in Papua New Guinea. These are important programs.”

ADI thank Zali and her team for their continued support of our work in PNG.
