Papua refers to the people or nation of those who live in New Guinea Island. The Isle of New Guinea was previously divided by the British and Dutch colonial powers that ended up the two regions into two different names: Papua New Guinea (or better called East New Guinea) and West Papua, which is the western part of the Island.
