Health In Harmony partners with Alam Sehat Lestari (www.alamsehatlestari.org), an Indonesian non-profit organization co-founded by Dr. Kinari Webb, Dr. Hotlin Ompusunggu and Dr. Antonia Gorog. The Indonesian name Alam Sehat Lestari means “Healthy Nature Everlasting,” and its acronym, ASRI, means “Harmoniously Balanced.” ASRI works with local communities to integrate high-quality, affordable health care with strategies to protect the threatened rain forests of Gunung Palung National Park.
True to its name, and true to Health In Harmony’s mission, ASRI combines health care, conservation, environmental education, and training in alternative livelihoods and medicine in Sukadana, West Kalimantan, Indonesia.
