Papua New Guinea view

Healthcare in Papua New Guinea is provided primarily by government and religious organizations. Beside these two major health service providers there are also many well equipped private hospitals in Papua New Guinea who  provide healthcare services across the country.  The country currently spends around 4.5% of its GDP on health services with approximately 20% of this coming from donors and development partners. With one of the lowest number of   physicians in the world at just 1 doctor per 17068, and 5.3 nurses per 10,000 according to the World health organization estimates, Papua New Guinea also suffers from infrastructural and other medical staffing needs especially in the rural areas where around 85% of its population reside. The public health workforce is characterized by an aging workforce, low numbers of critical cadres, such as midwives and community health workers, a de-motivated workforce due to poor working conditions including low wages and poor physical infrastructure.
