Two health centres in the Simbu province will soon have a safer way to dispose of medical waste from their centres following the delivery of two medical waste burners – incinerators – to the provincial health department in Kundiawa town earlier this year.

Lina Kua, coordinator for Simbu Family health services received the two incinerators. She said two will be installed at Demang Sabel health centre, a two hour drive out from Kundiawa town just near the border between Simbu and Jiwaka provinces.
