The second week saw the group travel to Jakarta, to be welcomed by the Faculty of Public Health (FPH) of Universitas Indonesia (UI). The series of seminars included topics in food safety, environmental health, communicable and non -communicable diseases, and reproductive health.
Students visited a private hospital, Hermina Hospital, where they observed the programs and activities in treatment and prevention run at the hospital. Students also visited Puskesmas, a community health center in an urban area, and were encouraged to compare this center, with the one they visited in the rural setting in the previous week.
During the week at UI, students were assigned to groups with local students from FPH, and worked on preparing their final presentation. The presentations were delivered to FPH lecturers, other FPH students, and ACICIS staff. Universitas Indonesia officially closed the program, and the students attended a farewell dinner on the last day of the tour.
Congratulations to all PHST 2017 students for being such a great group throughout the tour! We hope you enjoyed your time in Indonesia.
