Tikopia is a rarely visited island in the Solomon Islands group. Ships rarely visit here and the only medical care is a locally trained nurse. I saw some of the most serious medical problems of the trip in the three villages on this island. It can be very frustrating as there is nothing I can do for some of the advanced conditions. But it is quite rewarding when there is something I can do to help.
