Mission

Yayasan Rama Sesana's vision is to create a healthy generation of women. Its mission is to improve low-income Balinese women's sexual and reproductive health, including the prevention of and wider spread of STIs and HIV/AIDS, prenatal care, family planning, early cancer detection and counselling. Based in Pasar Badung, Bali's biggest traditional market, YRS has operated since 1999 as a local non-profit, non-government organization. It provides its clinical services at Pasar Badung, mobile clinics in remote and metropolitan areas throughout Bali, and education programs on a donation basis, with a particular focus on the low-income women of Bali's traditional market communities.

Programs

YRS initially conducted small-scale outreach work for AIDS prevention among risk groups, such as male migrant workers. In early 2003, YRS developed a plan to open a comprehensive Reproductive Health Centre (RHC) designed to be accessible for, and meet the needs of, low-income and vulnerable women in the general population in Bali. To maximize accessibility for women who are already lacking in time and money, Pasar Badung, in Bali's capital city Denpasar, was selected as the location. Not only is it Bali's largest traditional market and located in the centre of the capital city of Denpasar, but it is an active area of commerce almost 24 hours a day - a trading centre for the entire province of Bali. YRS' target audience is the market vendors and other labourers from the two market buildings and surrounding areas, who mainly come from Bali and East Java. Client ability to pay for health services has remained consistently low, both confirming the great need for our program while also re-emphasizing the inability of this program to rely on client payments to cover any substantial portion of program costs. Program Goals: Increase community knowledge about reproductive health, and encourage people to practice safer behavior and to use health care services Improve community reproductive health with high-quality, accessible and affordable services Support women's empowerment and equality between men and women Clinic Services: Pap smear for cervical cancer screening STIs and reproductive tract infections examination, testing, treatment, and partner referral Prenatal care, including birth planning Contraception, condoms Referrals for further services or testing (including assistance as needed) Counseling on reproductive health & anatomy, STIs & HIV/AIDS, drugs, self breast exam General health check
