The team at Australian Doctors International (ADI) have been working hard over the last couple of months and there are a few new projects in the pipeline. More on those shortly… In excellent news, we have been notified that we have received full accreditationfrom DFAT under the Australian NGO Cooperation Program (ANCP)! This achievement recognises ADI’s work and progress in partnering with local health service providers to deliver healthy outcomes in PNG, and facilitates our work in new locations across PNG. It represents years of hard work, and the incremental growth of ADI as a development organisation. We are grateful for the recognition from DFAT in that and look forward to continuing our work in PNG.
Importantly, ADI has now formally entered into a Memorandum of Understanding with PNG’s National Department of Health (NDoH) – the MOU has been signed by both the PNG Secretary of Health, Pascoe Kase, and ADI’s President, Dr Peter Macdonald. Parties agree to work collaboratively towards objectives and priorities set out in NDoH’s plans, policies and programs, including with a focus on increasing access to health services for underserviced communities.
ADI are also pleased to announce a new partnership with the Old Dart Foundation. TheFoundation is a good match for ADI with their focus on programs that tackle poverty in Chile, Papua New Guinea, Peru and the Philippines.
