For many Indonesian people, even the most basic health care is often inaccessible, sometimes due to isolation, socio-economic conditions, lack of transportation, or limited resources.
APP mills provide various health care services for the surrounding community depending on the needs of each area. APP mills in Riau Province, Sumatra, provide a floating clinic that visits the most remote areas along the Siak River to provide health assistance as necessary. In 2007, it served 1,300 villagers in five remote communities along the Siak River. APP’s mill in Karawang District, West Java Province, reached out to their villagers by providing a mobile clinic equipped with medicine and a physician, and serves local villagers on a rotating basis.
Other APP mills provide the community with easy access to health care assistance for under-privileged villagers and food for malnourished children under five. In addition to health assistance, APP supports health education campaigns to raise the communities’ awareness and knowledge of common diseases in their area such as Malaria, Dengue Fever, or AIDS.
