Central health not prioritised


I WOULD like to comment on the passing of the Central province budget for 2017.
It looks like there is more money allocated to education and transport infrastructure.
I would also like to make it clear that health services are very poor in the rural areas and the Port Moresby General Hospital is the only option.
This is a very expensive exercise for rural subsistence farmers. Where Ausaid and other organisations cannot assist, the Government should step in to improve facilities and develop better accessible sub-health centres to improve basic health services.  I wish the rural communities would have been considered in this budget
