The PNG Health Project was born in 2013 when 6 dedicated medical students rotated through the Western Province of PNG. Their destination was Kiunga, a small village for most but a thriving metropolis for the locals. The Kiunga Hospital can take 60 patients and handle almost any medical problem. A joint project between Hope4Health, QRME and Ok-Tedi Mining, the placement offers students the chance to experience the challenges and rewards of practising medicine in a developing country.
Since its inception, the PNG Health Project has grown in size each year.
