In 2018, World Vision responded to the call to assist survivors of the 7.5 magnitude earthquake in the Southern Highlands of Papua New Guinea. One year after, with funding support from the New Zealand Aid Programme, World Vision was able to address the water, sanitation and hygiene needs of 22 communities around the Mt. Bosavi area, protecting the health and well-being of men, women and children in the affected areas.

Papua New Guinea

In Papua New Guinea, we work with various partners in a grant-funded context to improve the well-being of the most vulnerable children, including their families, and communities. We help bridge the gap between basic services and communities’ priority needs, and work to transform people’s mindsets and behaviours to help them take ownership of their own development.  

We work with communities, local civil society organisations, businesses, non-government organisations, faith-based groups, and national and local level government to deliver multiple programs, namely Tuberculosis and HIV treatment and management, maternal, newborn, child health, and nutrition (MNCHN), water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH), education (early childhood care and development), livelihoods and resilience, child protection, reducing gender-based violence, and disaster risk reduction including climate change adaptation.  

In the past three years, World Vision directly assisted 154,148 people (including 66,933 children) through our various projects across 15 out of 22 provinces in the country.
