Dear HealthServe Australia friends and colleagues,

HealthServe Australia seeks to fulfil your vision and our HSA VISION of global health transformed by accessible, compassionate and high quality health care for all. We are delighted to share this partnership with you, our program partners and a Loving God who values justice and mercy (Matt 5:1-14). We aim to develop sustainable health programmes that will improve the total health and wellbeing of communities. HSA aims to help build a community's capacity for meeting its own health needs through partnership with community groups in projects.

You are welcome to join with us in our South Sudan Program Training Doctors, Nurses and Health workers. This is done in partnership with the ICMDA National Institute of Health Sciences, Jonglei, South Sudan. This program needs short term teachers and wise leadership in the midst of difficult and needy circumstances. Dr Owen Lewis from our South Australian team has recently spent one month training and teaching. As the HSA Executive officer, I will visit in early June to join in celebrations for the first student graduation where over sixty students; clinical officers, nurses and nurse midwives will be graduating. There will also be an important planning meeting at that time.

If you have skills in chaplaincy work you would be most welcome to support, join and encourage the work of our Chaplaincy capacity building as part of our Partnerships in International Medical Education (PRIME) work. I can share that Les White continues to provide regular training in Papua New Guinea. New sites for chaplaincy training are emerging in Singapore, Vietnam and the Solomon Islands.

The Yotkom Primary Health Care Project in Kitgum, Northern Uganda continues to build partnerships and strengthen local capacities in this resource poor part of eastern Africa. The first phase of building is complete. A second phase is planned in conjunction with building mobile health team resources.  Dr Andrew Wright and Mrs Anne Wright our programs have recently been honoured by awards of Members of the Order of Australia. The HealthServe Australia family congratulates Andrew and Anne.

Please join with us in supporting our partners via the HSA Easter Wheels-For-Life Appeal. In this campaign we are highlighting the work of a sustainable village health program in Maharasthra state, India; our Community Based Health Project (CBHP).

Partnering with Christian compassion; building local capacity to meet health needs,


Dr Michael Burke EO HSA

HealthServe Australia works in partnership with other international organisations, complementing their strengths with health resources. It has a special relationship with the largest group of Christian health professionals in Australia, the Christian Medical and Dental Fellowship of Australia (CMDFA) through which it was established. Many of the CMDFA members have worked for a number of years overseas in health work.
