Last Souls of Kalimantan

Malcolm Gladwell once said that poverty is not just a lack of material possessions, it is also a feeling of isolation. In the heart of Kalimantan, an unexplored ecosystem, the Dayak people of Indonesian Borneo reside in stilt villages. However, the rampant poverty caused by land grabbing has left entire tribes unable to access basic health services due to their geographically complex situation. With villages connected by impassable rivers and land routes, health workers from “Nusantara Sehat” become the only source of healthcare for these people. Diseases such as hypertension, cancer, and diabetes are on the rise, making infectious disease control and prenatal care crucial.
