The Red Cross Red Crescent Movement

PNG Red Cross is part of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent movement that helps prevent and address the suffering of the most vulnerable communities. The Red Cross Red Crescent Movement is well over 151 years old and is grounded by the seven (7) Fundamental Principles and guided by the Geneva Conventions of 1949 and additional protocols of 1977. PNG Government is a signatory to the Geneva Conventions.

Red Cross Auxiliary Status:

The PNG Red Cross was established by an Act of Parliament in 1976. Which means that PNG Red Cross is an auxiliary to the government. That is, the PNG government has the primary responsibility to address the vulnerabilities that prevail in the country, but grounded by the seven (7) fundamental principles, the major role of the PNG Red Cross is to supplement them in the fulfillment of that responsibility through its Neutral Independent Humanitarian Action (NIHA).
