Bpk Agung Adi and Agung Katon gave a presentation and update of the Activities of Yayasan Kerti Praja (YKP):

YKP has been RCBND’s delivery partners in the HIV/AIDS program for many years. YKP was established in 1992 by Dr Wirawan, who is still extremely active, and Rotary has been working with them for more than 20 years. The Foundation provides a range of services to HIV/AIDS affected women and children:

  • HIV/AIDS prevention – outreach services to sex workers and affected groups;
  • STI screening and treatment, taking at-risk clients to clinics for check-ups; providing medicines for those who need them
  • Testing and treatment: provides around 300 person-tests per month, and around 1000 patients take ARV medication each month
  • Prevention of transmission mother > child; takes pregnant infected mothers to private clinics or PUSKESMAS
  • Mitigation activities – provide income-generating training for patients; cash and other support where needed; milk for babies to reduce the risk of transmission;
  • Funding – staff salaries paid by Global support groups, by GOI programs and by activity partners such as Rotary, and from local donors.
