Improving the Quality of Health through General Check-Ups and Blood Donation


Based on data from the Central Statistics Agency (BPS), the population of Yogyakarta has the highest life expectancy in Indonesia, namely 75.08 years in 2021. This achievement is proof that the quality of health in Yogyakarta is quite good. However, that does not mean that efforts to prevent various health problems in elders are not necessary. For example, UNY held a general medical check-up for lecturers aged 60-65 years and staff aged 53-58 on 11 May 2022 at the LPPM building. This activity is a collaboration between UNY and Parahita Diagnostic Laboratory. In addition, the KSR PMI UNY unit also held a blood donation event for interested lecturers, staff, students, and the general public in the same building and time.

"This health check and blood donation activity is proof that UNY cares about the health and humanitarian issues. So let's donate blood for those who feel healthy," said UNY Rector, Prof. Sumaryanto.

In this one-day activity, around 200 people completed general medical check-ups. Meanwhile, for blood donor activities, there were 49 donors. (Khairani Faizah, Tj.Lak)
