Segment 1

ADE YUNARSIH [Local Health Worker]
My name is Ade Yunarsih and I am 36 years old. My father worked in the field of health and this was probably why he wanted me to get educated in health. I have been working as a community midwife in the Panembong village for about 15 years. People lack awareness about the importance of health. When the baby or the child suffers from a fever or an epileptic seizure, the parents prefer to ask about healing water rather than taking him or her to the hospital. This village borders mine, so it did not take a long time for people to start knowing me, to start recognizing me as one of the locals. My motivation is to improve this community’s health by advising them further. I hope that people will be more motivated in a positive manner.
