PNG Health Care Manual for Healthcare Workers



CHWs are vital for providing primary health care to the people. They are a first point of contact for those who need healthcare, and in rural and remote areas they are often the only available source of medical assistance and health education for the community.

CHWs greatly value the Health Care Manual as a practical resource. The Health Care Manual has not been updated in 20 years, and is out‐of‐date, and out‐of‐print.

The HCM3 project commenced in 2015 and is led by the Baptist Union of Papua New Guinea (BUPNG) and supported by its Project Management Team (Project Coordinator,
Commissioning Editor, Publishing Specialist and M&E Adviser).

Key stakeholders supporting the project have included the Church Partnership Program (CPP), Christian Health Services (CHS), National Department of Health (NDoH), and Australian
Government (DFAT).



The 3rd edition of the Health Care Manual (HCM3), based on current health care information and suitable for use by Community Health Workers (CHWs) was published November 2019 in the amount of 2,000 double volumes.

The original plan was to print and distribute 15,000 double volumes of the HCM3 to all CHW training schools and CHWs across PNG.

It it the hope of Healthserve Australia that in 2020 and 2021 we will obtain new funds to continue to meet the demand for this Healthcare Manual throughout PNG. All donations from the public are fully tax deductible.
