BUSINESSES are being asked to support the Papua New Guinea medical symposium from Sept 1-6 in Lae.
The symposium is expected to attract more than 600 doctors, medical practitioners, researchers and professionals to discuss “malaria – past, present and future”.
Behavioural patterns and the direction malaria is heading are beginning to interest the medical fraternity.
Angau Memorial Hospital chief executive and symposium chairman Dr Polapoi Chalau said the symposium was relevant as malaria was a leading cause of deaths in PNG.
“The threat of new strains of malaria entering the country through Asia is very critical. That is likely to top the item list for debate,” Chalau said.
