About Anglicare PNG Inc

Anglicare is a National NGO started in Port Moresby and now has establishments in Popondetta, Morobe, Mt. Hagen and Wabag. We also cover nearby provinces like Central and Gulf in our work. The Anglican Diocese of Port Moresby initiated to establish originally called Anglicare StopAIDS PNG (and then changed to Anglicare PNG Inc in 2010 to show the national approach) as a Church response to the growing concern of the rising HIV and AIDS and Sexually Transmitted Infections in Papua New Guinea. The concern was not limited to raising awareness, educating, counselling and testing, but to offer care, support, and treatment for the infected and affected due to the high prevalence of stigma and discrimination. Anglicare was established in January 2000 from very humble beginnings by two female expatriates in Port Moresby, Kay Nicol and late Jeannette Southwell, and was incorporated in October of 2002. Anglicare has continued to grow in size due to the securing of Donor funding from a number of organisations over the years and the requests from the communities for services and training in relation to HIV and AIDS. People want to be informed of the changes occurring in their world, but need others to give them accurate information on the things that affect and contribute to the changes. This is where in the past Anglicare had built a reputation of ‘working in the community’ and reaching out to the grass roots people in the isolated areas. The organisation has been instrumental in encouraging more women to participate in decision making and supported them in care development training over the years. The programs and activities have also highlighted many of the gender related issues that women have been dealing with.
