“Chainsaws and Stethoscopes.”
Kinari Webb is an American physician who first came to Indonesia in 1993. In the US, Kinari founded Health In Harmony to support the work in Indonesia and then, six years ago, she co-founded Yayasan Alam Sehat Lestari (ASRI) in West Kalimantan with dentist Hotlin Ompusunggu.
ASRI addresses both short-term and long-term health issues by focussing on the foundations of good health: access to high-quality health care, environmental protection, healthy livelihoods and improved knowledge. They hope to replicate the model worldwide and will discuss a toolkit for doing so in her talk “Chainsaws and Stethoscopes.”
