Basic Health | Programme | Digicel Papua New Guinea Foundation

Basic Health

We are committed to providing access to basic health services in rural and remote communities. We do this through the provision of Mobile Health Clinics (MHCs) and more recently our Rural Health Aid Posts (RHAPs). To date Digicel PNG Foundation has funded 31 MHCs and 9 RHAPs which have been delivered to various church partners and government run health facilities. The impact the MHCs has had on remote Papua New Guinea has been phenomenal with over 72,300 outreach programs conducted and over 757,000 people receiving medical aid and treatment. Through these health outreach programs, health services are brought right to the doorstep of people who would otherwise have to walk kilometres and days to the nearest aid post or health centre. The MHCs provide immunization, HIV/AIDS testing, treatment and counselling, TB and Malaria treatment and prenatal and postnatal care, free of charge.
