The Bhakti Sosial Kesehatan clinic in Kebayoran Lama, South Jakarta, was opened in 2003 as a branch of a clinic with the same name in Kebayoran Baru. The first clinic was established in 1995 by five doctors as an extension of their assignment to create a program to offer free-of-charge medication. Now the clinics are open almost every day, operated by retired doctors. They charge patients only Rp 10,000 (69 US cents) for an examination, treatment and medicines.
The Jakarta Post talked with one of the clinic’s founders, Dr. Mangku Sitepoe, an 85-year-old doctor and vet who has devoted himself to selflessly practicing medicine. (JP/ Jerry Adiguna)
