HOSPITAL MONIES NOW DIVERTED BY O'NEILL TO GOVERNMENT MPs SLUSH FUNDS

by MICHAEL JOSEPH PASSINGAN

O’NEILL GOVERNMENT MPs PUTTING HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF KINA FOR HOSPITALS INTO THEIR OWN SLUSH FUNDS

Every day thousands and thousands of sick people queue up at hospitals and health clinics across the country seeking treatment or medicines for themselves or their loved ones.

But as Prime Minister Peter O’Neill and his colleagues and cronies steal more and more money, borrow more and more money and waste more and more money, those people are increasingly being turned away.

It does not matter how sick you are or who you are.

Children with infectious diseases, pregnant mamas, bubus with heart illness, people suffering from malaria or TB, diabetes and hepatitis patients – all are being turned away.

PETER O’NEILL SLASHING HEALTH BUDGET

Welcome to Papua New Guinea under the O’Neill Regime.

PNG Blogs recently revealed how the Prime Minister’s promises not to cut spending on essential services such as health were just lies.

According to the 2016 Budget, health spending has been slashed by 12% compared to the 2015 Budget, a cut of K110 million down to K1.5 billion.

The Prime Minister plans to keep on hacking the health budget – spending is to fall to K1.2 billion in 2017, a cut of 46.9% on the 2015 Budget.

HOW MANY MORE PEOPLE WILL DIE BECAUSE OF PETER O’NEILL’S GREED FOR MONEY AND LUST FOR POWER?

Now PNGBlogs can reveal that O’Neill and his colleagues are diverting hundreds of millions of kina meant to be spent on hospitals into slush funds for the 2017 elections - and into their own pockets.

Hidden away in the 2016 Budget Papers Volume Three Public Investment Program, is a table entitled TABLE 241 HOSPITAL MANAGEMENT SERVICES.

It shows that K225 million earmarked for spending on hospitals has been put into the Provincial Services Improvement Program.

Every citizen knows that the PSIP is a slush fund which is used and abused in exactly the same way as the DSIP.

PSIP money goes unacquitted. It is stolen by Mr O’Neill and his colleagues and cronies. It is wasted.

The effects of O’Neill’s cunning diversion of funds will be severe. One thing is sure: more people will die as hospitals have to do without the funds they need.

It is possible that some hospitals will close.

The table also shows that when compared to 2015, a total of K267.8 million has been taken from the budget for hospital rehabilitation and development.

Some hospitals will now get none of the millions of kina allocated to them for the period 2015-2019.

HOSPITALS WILL GET NOTHING DESPITE O’NEILL PROMISES

Hospital programs that will get not get the money allocated to them in the 2015 Budget for that period are:

Mendi Hospital Redevelopment                 K14 million
Modilon General Hospital Rehabilitation K15.3 million
Laloki Psychiatric Hospital Redevelopment K6 million
Vanimo General Hospital Rehabilitation K11 million
Kundiawa Hospital Rehabilitation                 K9 million
Boram General Hospital Rehabilitation         K10.5 million
Hela Provincial Hospital Development         K10 million
Daru Hospital Rehabilitation                         K10 million
Alotau Hospital Rehabilitation                 K12 million
Gerehu New NCD Hospital Developmnent K11 million
Kudjip Nazarene Hospital Rehabilitation K9 million
Old Nonga Hospital Rehabilitation                 K9 million
New Enga Provincial Hospital                 K127.8 million

TOTAL                                                         K254.6 million

PETER O’NEILL AND HIS COLLEAGUES DON’T CARE WHETHER PEOPLE DIE. THEY JUST CARE ABOUT MAKING THEMSELVES RICHER AND FATTER.
