Roselyn Can now do the Work that Required Qualification, Thanks to Australian Awards in-PNG Scholarships
Roslyn John is one of 13 Community Health Workers (CHW) in Hela who was fortunate enough to receive training in midwifery, obstetrics and gynaecology skills through the Hela Provincial Health Authority health worker training program. The training included advanced midwifery, maternity care and antenatal care skills to assist mothers and babies in the rural health centre.
“Now I am able to do the work that previously would require a qualified midwife or doctor when a mother is having complications during labour, but in consultation with a specialist” says Roslyn who has been working for over 20 years at the Kopiago Health Centre.
Australia Awards In-PNG Scholarships provide training in priority areas identified by the Governments of Papua New Guinea and Australia, delivered through selected partner institutions in Papua New Guinea. Nursing scholars and graduates contribute to quality health outcomes across PNG including in rural and remote communities.
