The National Government wants a unified pay system to ensure Church Health Service workers are paid under the government payroll.
Prime Minister James Marape says the Church Health Services play a very important role in the delivery of health services in the country.
He thanked the Church Health Services on behalf of the country and those who work in the church-run health services.
Marape said the government wants to have a unified pay system so those who work in the health sector, are paid under one payroll, like the education sector.
The prime minister says the National Health Plan for 2021 to 2031 will look at how best they can amplify the role of the churches in the education and health sector. The government is now working with the health department to see how this can be achieved.
Marape was responding to questions in Parliament from Obura-Wonenara MP Mehra Kipefa, regarding differences in salaries of church and government health workers and assistance to church health services.
