BIMC Hospital Supports Bali WISE in Women’s Health Education


(4/13/2013)

The BIMC Hospital Group and the ROLE Foundation have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) agreeing to provide health education to women from low-income families. The signing program was witnessed by Western Australian Senator Glenn Sterle, Chair of the Senate Legislation Rural, Regional Affairs and Transport Committee during his recent visit to Bali.

Forming part of a commitment to enhance the health of the Island of Bali, BIMC Hospital Group is convinced that through supporting the ROLE Foundation’s and Bali Wise's programs for women education the health of Bali’s less economically powered women will improve. 
 
“As a healthcare facility with highly qualified doctors and nurses, health education is a vital part of our services to the people in Bali. Even if we can’t reach everyone with our services, our corporate social responsibility activities allow us to widen the audience and increase the impact we make,” explained Craig Beveridge, Chief Executive Officer BIMC Hospital Group. “With Bali WISE we have found the right partner for our efforts.”
 
Founded by Australian expatriate Mike O’Leary, the Nusa Dua-based ROLE Foundation and Bali WISE’s shared vision is to break the cycle of poverty through upgrading the skill-base of participating women by providing free education, job skills and employment opportunities. Under the terms of the MOU, BIMC Hospital has become the medical partner of the foundations in providing a health-related education to the women served by Bali Wise and Role Foundation. 
 
Bali WISE’s conducts training to some 200 women every year providing women with basic skills such as reading, writing, English language, personal hygiene, health and office skills the program also imparts vocational skills sought by hotels, spas and other business institutions. “90% of our graduates find work immediately, either with our Project Partners or through their own connections,” said Liza Dawn, Chief Operating Officer of Bali WISE. “Individuals and organizations, such as Bali International Women’s Association (BIWA), regularly approach us to source staff from our recent graduates” she added. 
 
Kicking off the newfound collaboration, following the signing the MOU, BIMC Hospital conducted a seminar on “Women and Family Health” for over 20 underprivileged women participating in Bali WISE’s program. The seminar was at the BIMC Hospital in Nusa Dua led by Dr Meike Magnasofa, Medical Director of the BIMC Hospital in Kuta.

Enthusiastically received by the seminar’s participants, Dr. Mieke said: “It was a successful class, the students enthusiastically wanted to know and learn more. This was exactly what we wanted it to be.”
