Knowledge & Experience Sharing at the Office of the Ministry of Villages, PDT and Transmigration
Wednesday, June 1, 2016, doctorSHARE’s founder, dr. Lie A. Dharmawan, shared his experience in providing medical services to remote areas of the country in front of the audience who were mostly officials of the Ministry of Villages, Disadvantaged Regions and Transmigration.
Lie said that the term maritime medicine originally referred to treatment for people who work on ships only. However, this term can actually be interpreted more broadly.
“One strategy that can be applied as a solution to reach remote communities is to mobilize mobile hospitals on land, sea, and air,” said Dr. Lie.
This effort has been started by doctorSHARE through its various programs such as Floating Hospital (coastal/sea), Flying Doctors (air), and various medical services on land with a mobile clinic system.
This knowledge & experience sharing is also expected to inspire the Ministry of Villages, Disadvantaged Regions and Transmigration in developing Indonesia’s remote areas better.
The three-hour activity at the Office of the Ministry of Villages, Disadvantaged Regions and Transmigration – Jakarta was initiated in order to realize the Nawacita agenda of “Improving the Quality of Indonesian Human Life” and support one of the policy directions of the 2015-2019 National Medium-Term Development Plan (RPJMN) on meeting basic needs and basic public service needs.
