Peer Educator Meeting at March 12th 2020
Peer Educator Meeting at March 12th 2020

In March along with the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, YRS as the organization work in Health area, and the responsibility of the medical provider to continues to provide the medical services, although the work have highly risk to get infection from the patient or the health facilities. In this dangerous situation we have dilemmatic position as a medical provider.

YRS team keep in commitment to provide health services particularly to our direct beneficiaries of community around Pasar Badung and Pasar Intaran-Sanur. In this situation we realized the safety and protection is the priority. In other hand the availability of medical protection tools in the market are very rare, and some of medical store was no stock. This situation made our team to creative develop the simple Protection tools, but have enough function as a protection tools, so the services going to continue, and YRS team also under protection by the transmission.

The Government policy towards breaking the chain of transmission through social distancing makes YRS activities related to community outreach halted temporarily, the engagement of staff at risk of meeting many people was postponed.

As a solution to keep the YRS team productive, activities are carried out by working from the YRS secretariat to provide education to the community through online social media by paying attention to maintaining distance between staff when working. Besides that, we also train Peer Educator about general hygiene, how to maintain their health and protect themselves to increase people awareness about health in COVID-19 situation.

Because the Badung Market is a center for logistic and food trading, in this situation the buying and selling activities at the Badung Market are still running, even though the busyness is slightly decrease and the market visitors apply social distancing. Supporting facilities to protect and prevent the transmission are provided such as additional hand washing areas and disinfection rooms in the entrance gate for the market visitors.

We keep deliver mobile clinic service at Bangli Region in Tamblang village in COVID-19 situation. From these activities, more than 100 people received health services with 70 people received breast and cervical cancer screening.

February is known as the month of love because it is in the atmosphere of Valentine. YRS activities in February are carried out with the theme "Love", sharing care through health services and disseminating information on sexual reproduction to the public and their loved ones.

YRS carries out full of love health services for people in areas that are quite difficult to reach by health services in Munti Gunung Village located on the north side of Mount Agung. Health information is still very much needed by them, which has been difficult for them to get, so they tend not to understand the impact of lack of health knowledge. This can be seen that there are still cases of a 19-year-old mother who has 4 children and does not use contraception. More than 200 people accessed YRS services at that time, with various health problems. Besides at Karangasem, YRS also conduct another mobile clinic services at Bangli in Batur Tengah Village and Buahan Village who also have difficult access to health information. From mobile clinic activities this month, we reach more than 400 people within more than 250 people received cervical and breast cancer examination.

Sharing compassion is also done through the dissemination of reproductive health information and donating to YRS to succeed the women's reproductive health program. We attended an event held by the International School at Green School, where students and parents at the school made a donation to YRS and we provided health education to all visitors to the event.

February 4th is World Cancer Day, when organizations and individuals around the world unite to raise awareness about cancer and work to make it a global health priority. This year, it’s estimated that nearly 8 million people worldwide will die from cancer. Because of this, YRS keep force to spread women cancer information to market community. To get more deeply understanding in market community about cancer, we collaborate with peer and constantly give education to increase awareness and change attitude and behavior to better understanding about the nature of cancer and prevent die from cancer.

Mobile Clinic at Bontihing Village
Mobile Clinic at Bontihing Village

YRS activities this month filled with mobile clinic services to Buleleng, join fundraising event with BIWA at Lotte Mart and also peer meeting and discussion at Badung Market.

This month YRS held a mobile clinic service to Singaraja in Bontihing Village, the last mobile clinic for this year. This activity is slightly different from the mobile clinic that is usually carried out in other places, because this activity has received tremendous support from local community leaders Mrs. Putu Sumiarti and Mr. Made Sukrawa by involving village officials, and Puskesmas Kubutambahan II. Putu Sumiarti is a resident of Bontihing Village, a property entrepreneur and her husband who are also teaching staff at the Faculty of Engineering at Udayana University. She has a very high concern for social problems in his village in the village in Bontihing. By involving local village officials, Ms. Sumiarti organized health services and collaborated with YRS through public health services, early detection of women's cancers including: cervical cancer, breast cancer, reproductive tract infections and screening services using ultrasound as YRS usually does to villages others in Bali.

Thanks to Ms. Sumiarti and family for the warmth and friendliness of the whole family to help implement the YRS mobile clinic in Bontihing Village, so that we can provide health services to 206 patients including breast cancer early detection services using ultrasound, early detection of cervical cancer with IVA and Pap Smear methods, including the treatment of various reproductive tract infections. Hopefully the spirit of Ms. Putu Sumiarti and her family to share and have such great concern for others and the surrounding environment can inspire other communities, sharing for a better life for others.

We always concern to increase women health knowledge in Badung market by peer educators (PEs). The benefit of PEs program is we can reach directly the target program with their cultural and informal daily language. PEs meeting this month discuss about diabetic commemorates to world diabetic day and also additional material, family harassment to optimized Badung Market communities health status.
