Ms Aua relied that the Israeli Government would want to see a good use of those equipment at all health facilities.
“They (Israeli) wants a proper documentations and statistics of how these medicines are used in PNG. By doing so, we will definitely receive trust and confident to receive 3 to 4 shipments of medical supplies in a year,” she said.
