The mission of LearnToLive:Indo is to provide primary health care and early interventions to the people of North Sulawesi who are unable to travel or to pay for healthcare. A secondary goal is to inspire and create a learning environment for international healthcare workers so they may bring their experiences of Indonesia back to their country of origin and be better healthcare workers.
LearnToLive:Indo will be based out of Manado in North Sulawesi, Indonesia. Manado is the main city in the region with a population of 450,000. We will have clinics set up in four different locations within the region. The four clinics will be located in Beringin, Sapa, Bunaken and Likupang. Each clinic will be open for five days, and then allow two days travel and set up time for the next location.
Led by Yanti Turang, RN, LearnToLive:Indo will include medical professionals from the US and Australia. We will seek out students from universities in the United States and Australia, with which we have existing relationships. The medical team will also include four other healthcare professionals from Australia / USA and Indonesia. Once the team has been established it will be the people of North Sulawesi that will be our major participants. We hope to learn from their existing practices as well as provide support to those who cannot get the initial care they need.
