Where we work

In a nation where 43% of the population is under the age of 15, one in four Papua New Guinean children will not live to celebrate their 40th birthday.

Delivering basic services in Papua New Guinea poses enormous challenges with 84% of the population living in remote, rural areas. These communities are scattered over rugged terrain, complex river systems, vast expanses of ocean, and an extensive coastline – just a few hundred kilometres from Australia’s coast.

With our ship we help overcome the challenge by accessing isolated communities with medical specialists, supplies, health services and mentoring and support for rural health workers.
