Donation to Papua New Guinea- October 2016

The Developing Countries Program donated a set of Therapeutic Guidelines books for use in the library of the Medical School of the University of PNG in Port Moresby, where they are much appreciated by staff and students in the program.

Dr Niyati Sharma ( pictured ) was a member of Therapeutic Guidelines Ltd’s expert group for Dermatology 4. In October 2016, she travelled to Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea, to teach dermatology registrars at the Port Moresby General Hospital and University of Papua New Guinea Medical School.

This was a significant contribution as the medical school library resources were very depleted and these Therapeutic Guideline books will make a real difference to students and staff – and then to future patient outcomes in PNG.
