Hi all,

The concept of art therapy is now well established and there is firm scientific evidence for its benefits in its different forms in achieving and maintaining good mental health, when it is seen in the context of a wider supportive biopsychosocial environment.

I other words we treat the whole person and there is a team involving a good GP, psychologist and other social worker, the patient's family and friends, church or other non religious spiritual group, a club which can be a sports or another hobby club, and what I want to advocate here is an Art Club...

In this time in particular ART is a key 'nudger' of us individually and societally towards a better tomorrow..

I encourage everyone here to continue your creative pursuits, mobilise and inspire (don't force) your family, your friends, your clan to create!


This little doodle is the conception of what I want to dive into next. The ideas in the words are not new see 'Egan's Skilled Helper Model'

Zach Williams and Dolly Parton - There Was Jesus (Lyrics)

No one will be happy all the time. You are not human if you do not feel down sometimes in your life. When we realise that we are a part of something so grand and eternal we will feel awe and humility at the same time.

In this time all our normal businesses come to a standstill because we remember Jesus. But let us NOT package and limit the greatness only to these few weeks but extend it to our every living moment.

You do not need to be a preacher and know every verse of the bible in order to connect to the higher being to whom we are all connected forever.

Take time to breath, feel and increase your own awareness of your connectedness. Love yourself deeply and completely. Accept your flaws and weaknesses and the fact that you have been wronged and you have wronged in the past. Try your best to resolve conflicts that can be resolved, at least make an attempt.

Take care of yourself like you are someone that deserves and needs taking care of. Be useful to yourself and extend your kindness to your brothers and sisters.

Have reasonable boundries and protect them while respecting others boundries.

Do YOUR best! Be awsome.

Making cervical cancer disappear.
• HPV vaccination program
• Cervical cancer screening program.

Dr. P J Rooney

Between 1982 and 2019 the rate of cervical cancer caused deaths (number of death per 100,000) in Australia decreased dramatically from 5.5 to 1.8.

With the relatively recent introduction of a less invasive, more convenient national cervical cancer screening program in 2017 and national HPV vaccination program, cancer of the cervix will become very rare in the next 1 or 2 decades.

While the screening program is aimed at picking up women who have developed the very early stages of the cancer so that it’s progression can be halted preventing death, the HPV vaccination stops women getting infected by the virus that causes the cancer in the first place essentially. This alone will lead to a massive drop in the incidence of cervical cancer and for as long as the vaccination program is maintained we will see less and less women with cancer of the cervix.

Now what do we need to do in PNG to maximise the power of this wonderful medical scientific public health knowledge and breakthrough.

This will be the topic of my next video. Stay tuned.

So I've created this page for sharing my thoughts on health in PNG. A big topic with equally big complexities which there are no easy quick fixes. My thought are merely that my thoughts agree with them or disagree with them but whatever you do be positive and do what you can to improve your own health, the health of your family, community and nation.

November 7, 2019

By Prof Glen Mola head of obs and gynae.

Dear PNG-NCD community,

PMGH is just not coping with the load of patients in just about every department of the hospital. I would like to write about the maternity section. Last year we had over 14,000 births in our 24 bed delivery suite.

We do not have the space, we do not have the resources and we do not have the staff to look after all these women properly.

Port Moresby is the only capital city in the world (of size more than half a million people) with only one public hospital. For our size we should have at least 3 large public hospitals and a number of functional district hospitals as well in the city.

We have tried on many occasions and over a span of 20+ years to build the capacity of Gerehu hospital, but even today there is no public maternity section at the Gerehu hospital.

PMGH is meant to be the national referral and teaching hospital, but it has to operate at the level of primary care, because there are no level 4 or 5 hospitals in Port Moresby for women to go to have a safe supervised birth.

This means that at PMGH we are swamped with thousands of women having essentially normal birth (but requiring careful observation for any obstetric or newborn emergency), and this often means that we do not have the space or the staff available to properly look after the very high risk and problematic and extremely dangerous pregnancies properly.

Can the government please stop building prestige (look at me) projects, and put resources into the ordinary care facilites that ordinary people need every day please.

We have the health planning capacity to do the appropriate health planning but we continued to be stymied by inappropriate agendas of high tech (that is necessary for the rare complications), but not required by the great majority of citizens needing health care at regular intervals in their lives.

Professor Glen Mola, Head of Obs and Gyn SMHS-PMGH

[11/20/19]   The health and fitness of any workforce directly impact on performance and productivity.
Medical conditions that greatly affect the working class which we often hear about include:
• Obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, ischemic heart disease and strokes.

• General physical inactivity and lack of cardiovascular fitness.

• Drugs, tobacco, and alcohol.

• Mental illness - especially post traumatic stress disorders (PTSD), depression and anxiety.

• Persistent asthma, chronic bronchitis and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

• Sexually Transmitted Illness (STI) – HIV, Syphilis, Hepatitis B, Gonorrhoea and Chlamydia and a few more

• In women - Pelvic inflammatory disease, breast cancer, cervical cancer.

The PNG public service, pre-employment medical examinations are all useless and need review and improvements.
They are done very haphazardly and will little integrity. Many Prospective employees who may have serious pre-existing medical condition(s) are ticked off as fit to work with little regard to their condition(s) and no proper plan to assist them in the long term care.
Once individuals are inducted into the public service as permanent employees, they do not undergo any further medical checks.
A lucky minority will enter the workforce with no pre-existing medical condition and remain relatively healthy and fit for their job until retirement.
For the majority however, they inevitably develop some sort of chronic illnesses which greatly impact their performance and their family and social life.
It is critical that we have a quality health and fitness program in place for all public employees.
An investment into such a program is highly cost beneficial and would be the most effective way to mitigate the negative impact of the above mentioned conditions and their long term devastating and costly complications.


The PNG Public services urgently needs a genuine formal health and fitness program. We are dieing to early and the solutions are not in highly technological interventions but rather basic but quality, evidence-based primary and preventative...
