Tribute to Kath Donovan, who studied sago haemolytic disease in Western Province in 1975 following Tukutautaufa's first reports in Maprik East Sepik Province 1974.

Health service needs to go to the rural remote communities and not wait for rural communities to come to hospitals in Papua New Guinea because there is such a geographical barrier.

Thanks to doctors like Kath Donovan reaching out to the remote communities.

I knew Kath when I was an ADO at Balimo.

She was what a real missionary should be.

A good life well lived.

I just hope the hospital in Balimo is still up and running. I heard that Australian Doctors International were helping out in the Western Province but when O'Neill took over the Sustainability Fund they lost their income and had to curtail their work.

There was an excellent Q and A from Sydney University on the ABC Channel 2 last night, where many people fired questions at the French lady, Christine Lagarde, who now heads the IMF. She emphasised that for the world to progress money must be spent on education and health in the developing countries. I'm sure PNG Attitude readers would heartily agree with her.
