PNG's Kavieng General Hospital is in dire need

Papua New Guinea's Kavieng General Hospital in New Ireland province is in dire need of a paediatric ward.

According to the hospital, children who are hospitalised are being put together with surgical patients, which is not supposed to be.

Dr. Paula Zzferio says a plan is in place to build a new paediatric ward, but there are no indications of when construction will begin. 

She says the hospital is currently doing all it can to provide the best health care to patients.

Dr. Zzferio also says the hospital needs political support to advance its efforts towards this cause.

She believes if the hospital has a political leadership, it will push to the fore the agenda for the benefit of the province.
