Angela Pisa Tom
Papua New Guinea

Master of Midwifery

Flinders University, SA

Angela has worked at the Western Highlands Provincial Hospital for the past decade. She has experience in a range of nursing areas including midwifery practice, sexual and reproductive health, school health and mobile outreach clinics. Angela’s passion is empowering communities, especially women, to be economically independent and equipped to cater for their families’ health needs.

On completion of her studies, Angela plans to implement community education programs on sexual and reproductive health issues affecting women. She hopes this will enable women to seek maternal health care early and consequently lower maternal deaths and pregnancy related complications.
