Urgent need for  Doctors and Nurses

We are seeking  volunteers for short, medium and long term appointments. If you are interested or know of someone who could fill this position please contact us today!

Medical Santo is based in the town of Luganville on the island of Espiritu Santo, which is the second largest town in Vanuatu. It is about a one hour flight north of the capital Port Vila. Air Vanuatu flies direct Brisbane to Santo on Tuesday mornings and a direct return flight is on Sunday evenings. Other flights to Santo come from Brisbane, Sydney and New Zealand.

The current population of around 15,000 people in Luganville is quite diverse. It comprises a vast majority of ni-Vanuatu with a small population of Chinese and European descendants. Some of the locals, although residing in Luganville, come from other parts of Espiritu Santo or different islands within Vanuatu. Tourists come to visit the resorts and beautiful beaches as well as dive the wreck of the USS President Coolidge and other war time relics.

Vanuatu is a safe place to visit. The people are extremely friendly and food is never in short supply. The weather remains warm all year round with the only two seasons being ‘wet’ and ‘dry’.
