About this Item

195 p. Includes illustrations. This is neither an official history nor the whole story of the hospital on Gemo Island, or of the management of tuberculosis and leprosy in Papua New Guinea. It is personal recollections and involvement during the most enriching years of my life. Many more people were associated with the hospital than I have been able to include here and some will have clearer memories and different interpretations. Some aspects of the history are already in print. However the Gemo story is worth preserving as it has a small but important place in the evolution of health care in Papua New Guinea. 0.0.
