Paiga Maternity Waiting Home

$

Help us save the lives of mothers and babies of a remote community in Papua New Guinea.

We are building a Maternity Waiting Home for mothers and babies for women from the South Fore and Gimi Wards in Okapa District in the Eastern Highlands Province of Papua New Guinea.

Okapa District has one of the worst rates of infant and maternal mortality in Papua New Guinea. This is the result of off-road mountain community remoteness, low literacy and health knowledge, poverty, and a chronic lack of primary health care services.

We want to reduce this by increasing the number of supervised deliveries for women aged 15 - 49 in two Wards in the District from 8% in 2019 to 36% by 2026.

Our organisation, Peoples of Australasia for Innovation and Growth Abroad (PAIGA) has been supporting the communities in these Wards for 15 years to meet their primary health care needs. You can read more about us and our work at paiga.org.au
