Western Medicare Limited (WML)

Was incorporated on 31st May, 2019 in Papua New Guinea and is holding Company Registration number 1-122619.

Western Medicare Limited is located in the township of Kiunga in Western Province, Papua New Guinea (PNG). The WML was established by the local landowner company LOTIC Bige Limited (LBL) with assistance and collaboration with Canadian Doctor Dhanesh Juta.

LOTIC Bige Limited (LBL) established in 2012 has been in operation for the last nine years. LBL is a fully owned subsidiary and operating company of Lower OK Tedi Investment Company Limited (LOTIC) which has been in operation for the last 23 years as a local landowner company.

LOTIC is the principal landowner company for the Lower Ok Tedi Villages. Lower OK Tedi Investment Company was established out of environmental issues when villages collaborated to sue BHP for damage to their environment (dieback). These villages (which mostly have land adjacent to the Ok Tedi/ Alice River) live along the Alice River and are known as the Lower Ok Tedi Villages. Lower Ok Tedi Investment Company was registered as a strategic umbrella company representing the Lower Ok Tedi villages to participate in various viable and profitable spinoff businesses identified in relation to the dredging operations in and around Bige. LOTIC Bige Limited (LBL) was subsequently established to manage the LOTIC business and expand the business looking beyond OTML, keeping the community interest in heart. Presently LOTIC Bige Limited is appointed as one of the three umbrella companies of Ok Tedi Mining Limited to participate in the spinoff and give an opportunity to the local community. LOTIC Bige Limited is a local landowner company which is operating as a company with 100% compliances as per OTML compliance audits and as the only local landowner company operating in WP with 3.6 points out 4-star compliance certification award received from independent auditors IBBM.

LOTIC Bige Limited as per its motto to “think global touch local” “empowering community” keeping community interest at heart with assistance and collaboration with Canadian Doctor Dhanesh Juta initiated this first one of its kind Health Care Service in Western Province, Kiunga as Western Medicare Limited. Western Medicare Limited (WML) was established to provide Primary Health Care Services, Public Health Services, Occupational Health Services, and Emergency Care & Response to the people of Western Province and the residents of Kiunga town. The emergency response includes emergency stabilization and medical transfer offsite if required.

The WML is managed by WML CEO with leadership from the Managing Director of WML. All clinical staff employed to work at the WML are PNG registered practitioners. The WML Clinic staff and management work closely with the local Kiunga hospital and OTML Health care units, which provides inpatient and after hours and emergency services in Tabubil and Kiunga. The Kiunga Government Hospital, OTDF and OTML are the key Government and Non-government entities which support the Health care of Western Province.
