John Reeder

Professor John Reeder (2000-06) joined IMR during tight economic times that meant the Institute was struggling financially and seeking new sources of funding. While this was underway, a five year strategic plan was developed as part of the wider 2001-10 National Health Plan. Recognising the importance of IMR’s work, the PNG Government and AusAID stepped in to provide support. Among other assistance, at Goroka, AusAID funded a new library and lecture theatre. Through closer union with the University of Papua New Guinea, IMR developed training opportunities for scores of the brightest and best PNG graduates. Meanwhile, groundbreaking work in areas such as filariasis and malaria continued.
