HEALTH / DOCTORS

The hospital in Vava'u is that of a developing country and it is not as well equipped as a hospital in overseas, available teratment is very limited. Any treatment/consultation has to be paid in cash.

Dr. Alfredo Carafa, who operated the Italian Clinic, passed away on Septembe 3rd, 2007.
