Temu gave the direction when he held an all-staff meeting at NDoH Headquarters.
He later had an incoming briefing with the Executive Managers of the various divisions, the two Deputy Secretaries, and Health Secretary Pascoe Kase.
A key point raised was the need to return to primary health care.
“There is a need to re-build what has been lost over the last decade.”
He urged the NDOH staff to put themselves in the shoes of a Papua New Guinean seeking basic health care and develop plans and policies from this perspective.
