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.
Opposite the Ministry of Tourism (formerly the Tongan
Visitor's Bureau) we
now have a small well equipped pharmacy and a private doctor.
Unfortunately we have no longer a vet here..
You may contact the Tongan Visitors Bureau
in Neiafu (Ministry of Tourism) for further details
