2018 PHST Tour Leader Announcement

We are also excited to welcome back Dr Luh Putu Lila Wulandari MPH as ACICIS’ 2018 PHST Tour Leader. Dr Wulan is a Lecturer at the Department of Public Health and Preventive Medicine, Faculty of Medicine, Udayana University, Bali.

Dr Wulan graduated as medical doctor from Udayana University, Bali, in 2002 and completed her Master of Public Health (by research) degree at UNSW in 2009. Since then, she has undertaken research projects in HIV and maternal and child health, as well as numerous consultancies focused on cross-cutting issues of development and public health for various international NGOs in Indonesia and Southeast Asia. Wulan has also served as a mentor within The Kirby Institute’s Field Research Training Programme in Indonesia. Currently, Wulan is a PhD candidate at UNSW’s Kirby Institute, and has been working as a casual academic at UNSW’s Office of Medical Education.

Wulan’s experience in mentoring and tutoring both Australian and Indonesian students, her direct experience working with governmental agencies and national and international not-for-profit organisations in Indonesia, and her deep understanding of Indonesia’s public health challenges ensures she is well equipped to support students undertaking ACICIS’ intensive two-week in-country public health program in Indonesia.

ACICIS would like to thank all the many academic, administrative, and student mobility office personnel at ACICIS’ member universities for their significant contribution of time and expertise in the design, development, and promotion of the consortium’s Public Health Study Tour. ACICIS also gratefully acknowledges the financial and in-kind support it has received through the Australian Government’s New Colombo Plan Mobility Program, which has partially underwritten the development of ACICIS’ Public Health Study Tour through the provision of student mobility grants. The New Colombo Plan is a signature initiative of the Australian Government which aims to lift knowledge of the Indo-Pacific in Australia by supporting Australian undergraduates to study and undertake professional experiences in the region.
