JTA must reverse poor health indicator in Western

Letters, Normal

The National – Friday, July 1, 2011

AS a concerned health worker, I have yet to see any contribution from JTA International, which is set up under the North Fly health development programme, and fully funded by Ok Tedi Mining Ltd.
I am wondering what it is doing as the health indicator in the province is going from bad to worse.
JTA is collecting monthly reports from our district health office and regurgitating our reports into gra­phs and charts.
Who is it trying to im­press and since it has all the data, why is it not doing anything?
