UNAIDS visit Klinik Bali Medika
The UNAIDS Programme Coordinating Board Delegation paid a visit to our Klinik Bali Medika on Friday 24th October, 2014. Twenty-five members assembled upstairs to hear a presentation about YBP by Dr Steve Wignall and Dr Yogi Prasetia.
UNAIDS are assessing the HIV epidemic in Bali and also assessing YBP’s Klinik Bali Medika in Kuta as a potential model for them to replicate throughout Asia. According to data from the Ministry of Health, the number of HIV cases among men and women has increased dramatically from 2008 to 2011.
The Klinik Bali Medika was established in October 2011 and since then, YBP have treated 3025 patients. The clinic has a medical doctor, a nurse, an admin officer, two lab technicians and a counselor.
