For Women: Items removed (and suggested for removal)

I removed the following from the list (see reasons for doing so in parenthesis):

  • vitamins -- PC medical supplies a multivitamin upon request
  • witch hazel -- I think this is only for if you have a specific medical need
  • rubbing alcohol -- PC medical kit includes hydrogen peroxide for cleaning wounds
  • soap -- soap is readily available in Tonga (of course!)

I recommend the following things for removal:

  • baby powder -- again, this seems like only something certain people will use (oily skin? rashes?) and the medical team should be able to supply other, equally effective means of treatment for any issues
  • deodorant, shampoo, body wash -- these things are easily found in Tonga and work just fine
