The Challenge

Despite increasing national wealth, human development outcomes continue to lag behind: PNG currently ranks 156 out of 187 countries on the Human Development Index (HDI). Life expectancy is 63 years, 25 per cent of children are unable to attend school, and adult literacy is around 50 per cent.

Only seven per cent of the population has access to the electric grid and a reticulated water system, and two-fifths of health/sub-health centres and rural health posts have no electricity or essential medical equipment.
