Her grandfather, who had a history of diabetes, had a stroke when she was a teenager. Unfortunately, due to inadequate facilities, he was bedridden for around 2 years before passing away. Her experiences during her grandfather’s illness fueled her determination to understand and tackle the challenges faced by stroke patients and their caregivers. This personal motivation drives her to adopt effective solutions to improve stroke care and rehabilitation in Indonesia.
Her personal connection to the stroke problem in Indonesia motivates her to push for easily accessible and high-quality care, as well as to increase awareness about stroke prevention and early intervention. Her ultimate objective is to help build an Indonesian healthcare system in which stroke patients receive the greatest possible care and support, allowing them to recover and lead fulfilling lives.
