The Vaseline® Healing Project provided skincare training for general practitioners in Sulawesi, Indonesia, helping them to share their healing power more widely.
After successful training and treatment events in East Java, the Vaseline® Healing Project extended its parternships with Indonesia's academic teaching hospitals to provide training on dermatology and venereology in Sulawesi.
Indonesia is undergoing an ambitious healthcare reform plan, aiming to provide health insurance and healthcare for all for the first time ever in the archipelago's history. This has led to a huge increase in demand for healthcare practitioners. The Vaseline® Healing Project provided much needed training to help practitioners to better diagnose and treat skin-related medical conditions.
It is estimated that every doctor can positively affect around 5,000 lives in their local community1. Through the Healing Project treatment event held after training, many patients lives were improved by better training, better diagnosis, and better treatment.
