Sick state of Gusap

GUSAP Health Centre in Madang’s Usino/Bundi district needs money to upgrade aging infrastructures.
Executive officer Felix Karpai told the Post-Courier he “urgently needed” more than K66,000 to build staff houses and a perimeter fence around the facility.
Mr Karpai said there was a greater need for the authorities, especially the Joint District Planning & Budget Priority Committee (JDP&BPC), the Madang Provincial Government and the National Government to fund the health centre’s rehabilitation project.
He said: “The population of Gusap is increasing every week due to the introduction of oil palm on the Markham plains.
“Thus, the Government should upgrade infrastructures at the Gusap in a bid for it to deliver adequate and effective health services to the populace.”
Gusap health board’s deputy chairman Pastor Kom Gilmai expressed similar sentiments saying they were looking for funds to build seven staff houses.
Pr Gilmai said: “We are glad that AusAID has “given us the green light to finance one house. The Government should fund the rest of the houses and other facilities.”
