THE Pacific International Hospital has come on board as a major sponsor of the “Medical Society Symposium Scientific Programme,” scheduled in Port Moresby from Sept 2-7.
Hospital chief executive officer Dr Amyna Sultan presented a cheque for K25,000 to symposium organising committee chairman, Dr David Mokela last week.
 Amyna said the hospital had always been at the forefront of public private partnership.
“We have been a regular sponsor of the annual medical symposium and Medical Society of Papua New Guinea for this annual event and are proud to be associated with it,” she said.
She said two of its doctors, Dr Paul Alexander, the new medical director and laparoscopic surgeon, and
Dr Paul Mondia, internal medicine consultant, would be speakers at the symposium.
She said the symposium was an important platform for the medical fraternity to come together and
exchange ideas and learn about the best practices in the field of health care and challenges facing the country at present and in the future.
Pacific International Hospital is involved in numerous non-profit public health initiatives.
It has  carried out around 3,000 free eye checks and 1,200 free dental checks as well as free mammography, which is a breast X-ray for screening and early detection of cancer.
