Two pathways to empower low-income women in Bali
With a team of skilled educators, experienced doctors, nurses, midwives and outreach workers, Yayasan Rama Sesana is renowned throughout Bali as a vibrant, reliable organisation dedicated to improving the health of the low-income women in Bali.
We follow two pathways to empower women in relation to sexual and reproductive health. Long term change is achieved by education while immediate issues are diagnosed and treated at our community health clinics by donation or for free.
We work in traditional markets because they are the centre of community life. We have community health clinics at Tiara Grosir Market in Denpasar and at Intaran Sanur Market. We also operate mobile clinics and education programs to rural communities. Since 2004 we have seen over 22,000 individual clients, received over 73,000 total visits, and educated more than 55,000 people in Bali about sexual and reproductive health.
