Mobile Clinic at Kumbasari

YRS conducts mobile clinic visits at the Kumbasari, Kreneng and Anyarsari market to commemorate the Indonesian National Health Day on the 12th of November 2017. The visits fall in line with the Indonesian Health Program through a Family Approach that emphasizes the importance of the role of the family in health development. The family environment provides a basis for a person’s habits, behaviors and lifestyle.

An upbringing that emphasizes on healthy habits, initiated by parents and other influencers, will motivate the child to lead a healthy lifestyle when it reaches adulthood. On the other hand, a childhood where unhealthy life choices were the norm, will result in people not caring as much about their health and the health of their family once they need to care for themselves. Through the mobile clinic, community health problems are identified and addressed. YRS later educates the community on those problems and offers solutions to help the people increase both their personal and as their familiy’s health.

BIWA gave certificates to all Yayasans who supported the Rumah Sehat Healthy Day. We were very happy have taken part in this special event.

On June 2 at Tampak Siring, Ubud, a group of women who work in the traditional art of drum making were assisted by the YRS team at a Mobile Clinic. The women are employees of Bali Treasure, who specialize in drum making.  All female employees took part in the clinic, indicating the high level of enthusiasm. At the clinic the YRS team were able to provide reproductive health services including early detection of Breast Cancer, Pap Tests, Lab Test and HIV tests.
