Mobile Clinic Service at Tribuana Village
YRS continued our program activities during May. We offered mobile clinic services and also our routine medical and education services at our clinics in Denpasar.
We also participated in the national AIDS candlelight memorial on May 19 at Bajra Sandhi, Renon with the theme of “Ending AIDS Together”. This event was filled with candlelight, poems and music on the theme of supportin people living with HIV/AIDS. Through this event we all hope to suppress the negative stigma of people living with HIV/AIDS.
The mobile clinic in May was conducted at Tribuana village in collaboration with Bali International Women Association (BIWA) as part of the Tribuana Health Day organized by BIWA and the local community. 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. Besides clinical health services, YRS also provided education about women’s reproductive health.
YRS hope the women will now be more aware of the importance of health and able to check themselves, so their level of overall health can increase.
