The Papua New Guinea Australia Transition to Health (PATH) Program is one key way in which Australia is investing in PNG’s security, stability, and prosperity by delivering support to PNG’s health sector. PATH supports locally generated and scaled health systems reform, working in partnership with the Government of PNG on high priority health issues including health security, communicable disease, family planning, sexual and reproductive health, and maternal and child health. This strong partnership is supporting PNG to improve the health and well-being of its citizens in line with PNG’s National Health Plan. PATH looks to attract staff who are committed to this vision, and who are also able to work in collaborative, creative and adaptive ways to contribute to better health outcomes for people in PNG.
PATH is managed by Abt Associates, in association with an Aboriginal-owned and controlled company, Ninti One Limited.
