Summary


Problem statement

• PNG’s high revenue from mineral resources is seen as a

form of successful development ( Banks, 2005; Filer,

1990).

• The revenue flows are a contributing factor to the

challenges faced in the mine impacted communities

(Filer, 1999; Filer and Macintyre, 2006; Jackson, 2002;

2010; Kepore and Imbun, 2010)

• The lack of relevant policy support leads to a lack of

sustainability of community services in all stages of

mining (Hilson, 2006; McKay and Lepani, 2010).


Research aim

• To explore the role that health services can play in

promoting the building of community resilience in

mine impacted communities.

capitals to achieve community resilience to sustain a

high level of health service delivery.

• Limited access to good services (incl. health through

geography and/or cost) by the local populations in mine

impacted communities
