Description : This nurse, one of the seven staff working at the centre, is very happy that the Papua New Guinea Red Cross Society is providing first aid training to members of the community. "It is very good that there is first aid. Often they make mistakes and we have to correct them when they bring injured people in", she explains.
The medical staff is running a one month long campaign for immunization against polio and rubella with a mobile clinic, going from village to village. This campaign ends on 7th of July.
