Dr Charlie Coventry

Dr Charlie is a general surgical registrar from South Australia. He has previously been to PNG as a medical student and this inspired him to return as a doctor with ADI. While based in Kiunga, Western Province, Dr Charlie conducted outreach clinics in communities that had rarely seen a doctor. He used this opportunity to help train local health workers and offered health education to the wider community and in the schools. When not on patrol, Dr Charlie spent time in the surgical clinic and operating theatre in Kiunga Hospital.
