Summary

We aim to increase the community knowledge, awareness and access to sexual and reproductive health, through our Education Program and Sexual and Reproductive Health Services. Our current model of providing health education and donation-based services directly to market communities (and located at the Traditional Market), has been very successful in Denpasar and we aim to respond to community demand by expanding these services to support low-income women at other Traditional Markets in Bali.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

A large portion of women in Balinese market communities are at risk of health problems due to low education, low income, lack of information, long work hours and lack of time. HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) have spread throughout Bali and women suffer more severe consequences than men due to biological vulnerability to infection. Breast and cervical cancer, maternal death and domestic violence are also common in Bali and women tend to put low priority on their health.

How will this project solve this problem?

YRS provides quality clinical services and educational programming focused on women's reproductive health, at and for the Traditional Market community in Bali. To maximize accessibility for women already lacking in time and money, services and programs are donation-based and located at the market. This model is unique as it offers women accessible and inexpensive healthcare, providing an opportunity to prioritize their health without taking too much valuable time from their daily activities.

Potential Long Term Impact

YRS creates a safe space to explore sensitive and taboo issues, both in our clinical services and community education program. This dual approach encourages an open dialogue amongst the community while increasing knowledge about their health and their bodies, and provides efficient services for health check-ups. YRS clients, partners and volunteers continue to share information they receive with friends, families and neighbors- an effective mechanism for breaking down stereotypes and assumption
