Papua New Guinea
Papua New Guinea (PNG) is one of the most culturally and geographically diverse countries in the world. There are more than 800 languages spoken and the landscape is dominated by mountains, rivers and coastal lowlands. The capital, Port Moresby, is not linked by road to the rest of the country and most travel between provinces is by air.
World Vision PNG partners with communities, non-government organisations, faith based groups, private organisations and government departments to fight against poverty in PNG. World Vision is committed to building a hopeful future for children and empowering communities to take ownership of their own development.
We operate in five provinces in PNG (Port Moresby, Madang, Morobe, the Autonomous Region of Bougainville, Western Province) and are currently expanding into two more provinces (Sepik). Our work focuses on:
- health and nutrition
- tuberculosis (TB) treatment and prevention
- water, sanitation and hygiene
- gender and social inclusion
- economic development
- disaster risk reduction
