I wanted to work somewhere exotic, experience a different lifestyle and contribute to health advancement in a developing country. So I was delighted when Australian Volunteers International offered both me and my partner, also a doctor, a 2-year placement (February 2002 to February 2004) in Makira Province, previously the Eastern Solomon Islands.
