Taking Care of Our Parents

In the village of Pejanggik, in Central Lombok, the village government has used village funds to provide vitamins and regular twice-yearly medical checkups for older members of the community who are not covered by Indonesia’s health insurance program for the poor and near-poor. Last year, 1,200 elderly people joined the program, of whom only around 300 were covered by the national insurance program.
