Collaboration for Health in PNG

In 2001, a group of like minded pharmaceutical companies decided they wanted to address the HIV issue in PNG. An informal consortium was formed and the following aims were agreed:

  • to engage with and learn from regional and global networks involved in HIV care
  • to understand the factors – cultural, social, political and economic that affect access to treatment and care
  • to encourage co-operation among the health providers – faith-based, private, non-government, academic and public
  • to help develop healthcare capacities and systems
  • to link prevention, de-stigmatisation and legal protection to HIV care and support.

In 2003, the Collaboration for Health in PNG (CHPNG) was formed.
