Response to Re: The future of foreign aid in PNG after 25 years of successes or failures?
foreign aid is not BAD for png, it is bad management and inappropriate misuse of the funds that has been bad - this has been the downfall of aid projects being developed to the fullest. I was involved in a a very small aid program involving a literacy program for women. All the meetings, discussions, planning and set up of budgets and good intentions and enthusiasm of people involved in the program and how great it was going to be for the women that were going to be part of the literacy program went out the door when funds were misappropriated, and this happened not once but 3 times before the program was cancelled. How disappointing this was for everyone envolved, just because one or 2 people couldn't help themselves and were greedy. I would hate to imagine how much money is misapproriated and lack of good management.
What immunisation program are you talking about that would lead to women being unable to bear children in the future?
Other points I agree with you.
