300113 WHO WANTED A MASTER PLAN
By Aloysius Laukai
The CEO for the HEALTH DIVISION on Bougainville DOCTOR ANTHONY PUMPARA said that the Minister for Health and VICE PRESIDENT, PATRICK NISIRA wanted a long term Health Plan instead of annual Heath Reports which forced the division to seek help to work on a Health Plan.
DR. PUMPARA said since then the WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION conducted two assessments on developing a Health Plan of which AUSAID finally came in to assist with the Master Plan starting with the RAPID Assessment.
DR. PUMPARA made these remarks at the launching of the Bougainville Health Master Plan on Sohano island last Friday.
He said committees engaged by AUSAID then approached all the Bougainville communities to gauge their views on Health developments in the region.
The Doctor also called on the people of Bougainville to support the division in implementing the plan.
