Dr. Otto Numan

CEO Lorengau Hospital, Manus

Manus Province is remote and Dr Otto Numan (MBBS, DGO) has been serving the people of Manus Islands for nearly 30 years as an Obstetrician, Surgeon and Physician at the isolated Lorengau Hospital in Manus. Apart from provision of health services in remote Manus, Dr Numan is also a stern advocator for equitable health service delivery for the disadvantaged rural communities. As part of discussions surrounding the asylum seekers settlement on Manus Island, his critical role in improving essential health services in Manus Province was recognized and supported by international donors. In recent years, Dr Numan played a key role in equipping Lorengau Hospital and the provincial heath in Manus through the support package to Manus Province by the government of Papua New Guinea and Australia.
