Health Care for the Developing World

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text responsive_align=”center”]

The Introduction to Primary Health Care School (IPHC) calls those whose hearts beat to see justice prevail, the poor and needy fed, diseases eradicated, and communities transformed. Be trained and equipped as a health care worker for developing nation communities and work hand in hand with YWAM’s Medical Ship; meeting needs and building capacity in the nation of Papua New Guinea.

For YWAM Townsville, Papua New Guinea (PNG) is its closest international neighbour and 38% of it’s population lives below the national poverty line. It is one of the least explored, culturally and geographically. It has the highest incidence of HIV & AIDS in the Pacific bordering along the lines of becoming an epidemic. Malaria is the leading cause of death and illness. PNG is a country that cries out for justice and equality, where voices go unheard, and sickness hovers like an enemy.

The IPHC is not one for the feint of heart. It’s a course that beckons those that long to pioneer and establish new ground. It calls for those whose heart beats for the nations, to see justice prevail, the poor and needy fed, diseases eradicated, and to see God’s people empowered.

Offers of placement in a course will include any applicable requirements for English language proficiency.

International students on student visas are required to maintain satisfactory academic progress and attendance to meet the requirements of the student visa.

YWAM Townsville is bound by the National Code of Practice for Registration Authorities and Providers of Education and Training to Overseas Students. The Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations regulates the education and training sector’s involvement with overseas students studying in Australia on student visas. It does this through the Education Services for Overseas Students legislative framework. This protects Australia’s reputation for delivering quality education services and the interests of overseas students, by setting minimum standards and providing tuition and financial assurance.

The legislation mandates a nationally consistent approach to registering education providers so that the quality of the tuition, and care of students, remains high. The professionalism and integrity of the industry is further strengthened by the ESOS legislation’s interface with immigration law. This imposes visa related reporting requirements on both students and providers. A simple explanation of the framework is the Easy Guide to ESOS.[/vc_column_text][/vc_accordion_tab][/vc_accordions][mk_padding_divider size=”40″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″]
