Health Minister Michael Malabag has admitted he and his department are facing challenges in the delivery of quality health services after questions were raised in parliament relating issues in Goroka and Kimbe. He said shortages in the public health machinery continues to arise as we need more doctors, nurses and specialists and said it is vital that their welfare is maintained to keep them. He said Goroka has a new board in place and will soon be sworn in with Mal Kela Smith as the new chairman. Mr Malabag hopes the staff work well with the new board. For Kimbe, a legal team will be sent to the province to deal with a court order affecting delivery of health services in the province.
