In Conversation: Jelta Wong, Papua New Guinea Minister for Health
With a priority vaccination program underway, Papua New Guinea is striving to get control of a mushrooming outbreak of Covid-19. The virus is putting immense strain on the country’s health system, with hospitals and facilities struggling to cope.

PNG Health Minister Jelta Wong has been a key figure in the country’s response. Mr Wong was first appointed Minister for Health in 2019, and after a reshuffle in late 2020 was reappointed to the key post. Mr Wong has also served in the portfolios of Police and Civil Aviation after being elected to the East New Britain seat of Gazelle Open in 2017.

Join us for this special Aus-PNG Network online event with Jelta Wong in conversation with the Lowy Institute’s Pacific Islands Program director Jonathan Pryke.
