Indonesia’s Oxford University Clinical Research Unit (OUCRU) launched a teledermatology service, in a remote and economically underdeveloped island with a high burden of skin diseases.
Since its launch, the platform has trained and supported 30 health workers, with the intent to treat over 600 patients with a broad range of common and neglected skin diseases. Around 8,000-10,000 patients who presented with skin diseases have since benefitted from the initiative.
The grant will be used for continuous education and training on common and neglected skin diseases, strengthening quality of care for people, and increasing local capacity to deliver multidisciplinary healthcare services.
