WAYS to improve accessibility to better health and education were discussed at a forum in Milne Bay last month.
Government executives, stakeholders and community leaders reviewed the government’s current plans on the health and education sectors the meeting organised by the Consultative Implementation and Monitoring Council (CIMC).
Various topics such as challenges on implementing government policies in the southern region and the public’s perspective on health and education services in the country were discussed.
CIMC executive officer Wallis Yakam said his organization was tasked with providing avenues for discussion on development policy matters through regional and national forums.
He said the council co-ordinated implementation of the recommendations endorsed by the forums to tackle some of the country’s development problems.
Secretary of CIMC Dr Peter Kora urged the new government to make decisions which are consistent with the existing policies.
