ADI: Treating and training on the front line in PNG

Australian Doctors International (ADI) is a not-for-profit charity specialising in Integrated Health Patrols and health in-services, deploying volunteer doctors and health coordinators to work in partnership with local government, private companies and faith-based health providers to deliver unique value through the 3 way combination of:

  • clinical services and public health education delivered to remote and rural populations,
  • patrol based training that exposes health care workers to practical up-skilling opportunities and
  • opportunity for those health care workers to deepen and/or refresh their clinical skills in a niche  topic area previously identified as lacking.
