Jayapura, Jubi – The Health Department of Papua Province is seeking to improve basic services by reaching all health centers through the Healthy Papua Card (KPS).
“We continue to improve health services so that all the Papuan people will get better health care,” the head of the department, Aloysius Giay, told reporters in Jayapura, Papua, on Thursday (29/1).
The Healthy Papua Cards ( KPS) have been distributed to the 29 regencies and cities in Papua based on the technical guidance of its implementation, he said.
“The people can receive the cards in hospitals and/or health centers in all regencies and cities. Even in the near future, we will work closely with churches so that the cards can be obtained in the churches,” he added.
Previously, member of Commission V of Papua Legislative Council on education and health, Gerson Somamewanti hoped that KPS program can be used for the Papuan people who cannot afford medical treatment.
“The government should really be careful in the administration and distribution process that the cards would go to those who are in need,”Gerson Soma said to Jubi on Tuesday (6/1). (Alexander Loen/ TN)
