Some portion of "rehabilitating rural healthcare infrastructure" might be nonrecurrent. For the 2017 election as I recall, candidate O'Neill outlined upgrade works for some health facilities, a pledge that seemed to have no mention of building maintenance.

Yet since the 2017 election, as to "improving the availability of medical supplies", quite the reverse has become evident, with a likelihood any 'found funds' will be put to use in recurrent categories.

If there is to be a glimmer of hope proposed by "supporting new health partnerships", will that be by programming cost improvement, curtailing financial flagrants, regenerating compacts with community expectancies, or invoking intercession of unverifiable casuistry?

Trust the Health Department with this loan money? Good luck with that. Still, Borneo Pharmaceuticals probably needs a top up - again.

I see that there was a confirmed case of polio last week.

What happens when the loan is spent?

Does everything return to the parlous state it was before?

You can't run something like healthcare on loans and handouts. There has to be sufficient recurrent funds in the budget.

This is a classic PNG approach. Buy a car with a loan and then have no money to put petrol in it.
