In Papua New Guinea, 1500+ women die every year from childbirth-related causes – 80 times higher than in Australia. And these deaths are, mostly, preventable.
Geoff spent from 2011 to 2013 based in Papua New Guinea, working on a range of Burnet projects including the East New Britain Sexual Health Improvement Project and Home Based Malaria Management.
Prior to joining Burnet he worked in other areas of development, including education and disaster risk reduction.
Geoff has strong practical experience in health programming and implementation in developing contexts, including training and capacity building approaches.
