This was the first DAISI trip to Helena Goldie Hospital in Munda by colorectal surgeons Dr Santee Santhanam and Dr Gary McKay. It was a friendly reception with lots of operating to do in the short period (2 days) that they were there. The hospital has no anaesthetist, so only minor operations under local anaesthetics were done. In total 22 operations were performed, with larger cases requiring general anaesthetic sent to Gizo hospital.
