The Papuan Children’s Health Initiative
This non-profit group was originally established to raise funds to help underprivileged children in Papua obtain surgery to remedy life-threatening conditions, and this continues to be part of the organization's mission. Its capability and reach have also extended considerably over time.
ASP's current programs include a community health initiative that has greatly enhanced the well-being of people living and working in the Bird's Head region of Papua. In addition, Dr. McMullen's group has pioneered health microenterprise development approaches to control malaria and provide health services in remote regions; reduced children's death rate from seasonal diarrhoea epidemics; improved maternal and child health; and provided basic health services in many remote communities.
Moreover, the organization also works in conjunction with business, community, government and other entities to address the HIV epidemic in the region. It also employs and trains Papua-based health staff within a social business model in order to build sustainable health care.
Dr. McMullen was employed by BP as a health adviser and medical director between 2002 and 2009, and won a Helios Award, the company's highest employee recognition award, in 2006.
