) based on the specialized characteristics, but recent molecular and morphological studies show that the group is positioned in the middle of various other groups. They are widely distributed throughout the Australasian region, including south-eastern Asia, Polynesia, Papua New Guinea, Timor Leste and Australia, and the majority have very brightly coloured plumage. Prions appear to be most infectious when in direct contact with affected tissues. For example, Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease has been transmitted to patients taking injections of growth hormone harvested from human pituitary glands, from cadaver dura allografts and from instruments used for brain surgery (Brown, 2000) (prions can survive the "autoclave" sterilization process used for most surgical instruments). It is also believed that dietary consumption of affected animals can cause prions to accumulate slowly, especially when cannibalism or similar practices allow the proteins to accumulate over more than one generation. An example is kuru (kuru (disease)), which reached epidemic proportions in the mid 20th century in the Fore (Fore (people)) people of Papua New Guinea, who used to consume their dead as a funerary ritual.

Following a national outcry, these SABLs have been subject to a Commission of Inquiry, established in mid-2011, for which the report is still awaited for initial presentation to the Prime Minister and Parliament.

Papua New Guinea

'''Papua New Guinea''' ('''PNG'''; ; Hiri Motu (Hiri Motu language): ''Papua Niu Gini''), officially the '''Independent State of Papua New Guinea''', is an Oceanian country that occupies the eastern half of the island of New Guinea and its offshore islands in Melanesia, a region of the southwestern Pacific Ocean north of Australia. Its capital, located along its southeastern coast, is Port Moresby. The western half of New Guinea (West Papua (region)) forms the Indonesian provinces of Papua (Papua (province)) and West Papua (West Papua (province)).

Papua New Guinea is one of the most culturally diverse (Cultural diversity) countries in the world. 848 languages are listed for the country, of which 12 have no known living speakers. Papua New Guinea. Ethnologue Most of the population of over 7 million people live in customary communities, which are as diverse as the languages.

Strong growth in Papua New Guinea's mining and resource sector (Mining in Papua New Guinea) has led to the country's becoming the sixth fastest-growing (List of countries by real GDP growth rate) economy in the world as of 2011. Many people in the country live in extreme poverty when measured in terms of money, with about one-third of the population living on less than US$1.25 per day. ''Human Development Indices'', Table 3: Human and income poverty, p. 35. Retrieved on 1 June 2009

At the local level, the majority of the population still live in strong customary societies and - while social life is overlaid with traditional religious cosmologies and modern practices, including conventional primary education - customary subsistence-based agriculture (Subsistence agriculture) remains fundamental. These societies and clans are explicitly acknowledged within the nation's constitutional framework. The Papua New Guinea Constitution expresses the wish for "traditional villages and communities to remain as viable units of Papua New Guinean society" and for active steps to be taken in their continuing importance to local and national community life.

At the national level, after being ruled by three external powers since 1884, Papua New Guinea established its sovereignty in 1975 following 70 years of Australian administration. It became a separate Commonwealth realm with Queen Elizabeth II (Elizabeth II) as its head of state (Monarchy of Papua New Guinea) and became a member of the Commonwealth of Nations in its own right.
