Country needs more doctors


THE Parliament has just passed the bill to recognise medical doctors who graduated at the Divine Word University.
The 19 doctors will join the workforce following the passage of Medical Registration Amendment Bill.
Congratulations Divine Word University.
When presenting the Bill, Health Minister Jelta Wong said the Medical Registration Act 1980 was the law that regulated and registered all the different cadres of health professionals in PNG.
This law, on the other hand, gives confidence and reassurance to the public of the health professionals’ expertise in delivery of safety and quality health service
Wong said the law was amended because it restricted the registration of doctors to only graduates of the University of PNG and foreign-trained doctors.
We need more doctors.
