Lifeboxes to the western Pacific

16 December 2020

Find out how we've helped to improve health outcomes in the western Pacific region this year.

Our longstanding relationship with Lifebox Australia and New Zealand is one of the many initiatives managed by the ANZCA Global Development Committee to help support and build the anaesthesia and pain medicine workforce in western Pacific countries including Papua New Guinea and Timor Leste. 

The donation of more than 150 pulse oximeters - a non-invasive medical device that checks the level of oxygen in a patient’s bloodstream -  will help maximise the region's response to COVID-19 and serve as an important piece of equipment post-pandemic.

This important work is supported by college donations. For further information or to make your own donation to Lifebox, visit Lifebox Australia and New Zealand.
