Anthony Radford was the inaugural professor of primary care at Flinders University in Adelaide, South Australia. Before and after that appointment, he accumulated a total of 50 years of experience in Papua New Guinea (PNG). Radford first went to that country as a student in 1951; from 1963 to 1972, he was a public health officer there; and later, he consulted on PNG for the World Health Organization, UNICEF and AusAID. This book records these three phases of his service to Australia’s nearest neighbour.
