About Bali Peduli
Bali Peduli is a not-for-profit organisation started in 2011 in Bali by a group of friends to eliminate barriers to HIV care.
The organisation provides early testing and treatment to prevent the spread of HIV and sexually transmissible infections (STIs).
In addition to clinical services, the organisation provides HIV-related outreach, support and education as well as mobile HIV and STI testing in prisons and sex work locations.
All Bali Peduli’s services are provided free of charge by a staff of 30 including doctors, lab technicians, midwives, counsellors and outreach workers. The organisation is governed by a five member board of directors.
Bali Peduli is legally recognised by the government of Indonesia and is a member of a regional network of professional organisations working in HIV, viral hepatitis and sexual health throughout Asia and the Pacific. This network includes the Australasian Society for HIV, Viral Hepatitis and Sexual Health Medicine.
