The activities implemented by KBF range from maternal and child health, Family Planning, Women’s health, teenage reproductive health and prevention of reproductive tract infections, including STDs and HIV/AIDS. These clinics provide maternal and child health services, such as Family Planning, immunizations for mothers and children, antenatal care, pap smears, traditional childbirth deliveries, general health care and dental health. The midwives are in charge of most clinical services, which enable KBF to continue to provide independent services at low-cost without compromising the quality of service. Also the midwives have the ability to better communicate with lower class society. Another innovation of KBF is their mobile team that goes to locations where groups of women gather, such as the Dharma Women group and others, and provide pap smear services. In general, the clinic focuses on curative service; however, almost 70% of the KBF clinic’s services are preventative and promotive. YKB is currently working together with the government, especially the health insurance services (the National Employees Health Insurance, or Jamsostek, in the Rancaekek area clinic, in Sumedang regency), to provide help with vaccinations and also work with private hospitals in the form of referrals to patients. Presently, there are not many health related NGOs that prioritize preventative and promotive services. In the future, KBF plans to have additional clinics that work together with health NGOs, with KBF functioning as technical assistance.
