After obtaining 5 Stars on the 2022 Healthy University Rating System (HURS), Universitas Indonesia received another visit for the 2023 HURS assessment. It was carried out by the ASEAN University Network-Health Promotion Network (AUN-HPN) Secretariat at the University’s Central Administration Building. The AUN-HPN assessment of UI includes three HURS indicators: System and Infrastructure, Zero Tolerance Areas, and Health Promotion Areas.

At this meeting, the Secretary of UI, dr. Agustin Kusumayati, M.Sc., Ph.D., said that HURS encourages universities and community members to live better lives. The indicators set by HURS assess facilities that support a healthy environment and ensure the systems and policies implemented by UI make citizens healthy.

In fact, this ranking system is just an instrument. The most important thing is how to change ourselves and our behavior to improve. We analogize this ranking system to a medical checkup. “Just like when we do a medical checkup, the most important thing is not the examination results, but the changes made after we know the results of the medical checkup,” said Dr. Augustine.

Prof. Dr. Chartchalerm Isarankura-Na-Ayudhya as Dean of the Faculty of Graduate Studies, Mahidol University and Chair of the Committee on HURS Development, said that the purpose of this visit was to verify all data provided by UI regarding the condition of the facilities and systems. The AUN-HPN team wants to directly assess UI’s success in creating a healthy campus, as proven by its achievement of 5 Stars in its first participation in HURS 2022.

He said, I congratulate UI on the achievements achieved last year and express my gratitude for UI’s efforts in creating a healthy campus. We have followed the guidelines of UI GreenMetric and QS Rating System. In its ranking, UI GreenMetric provides information that can encourage universities to become green campuses. We want to expand this through HURS to monitor universities’ becoming healthy campuses.

The assessment was attended by representatives from UI, such as the Head of the UPT for Safety, Occupational Health and Environment, Prof. Dr. Ir. Sjahrul Meizar Nasri, M.Sc.; Head of Satellite Clinic, Dr. Dr. Dhanasari Vidiawati Sanyoto, M.Sc., CM-FM; Head of Public Relations and KIP Bureau, Dra. Amelita Lusia, M.Sc.; and Special Staff to the University Secretary for Healthy Campus Development and Disaster Response, Dr. Robiana Modjo, SKM, M. Kes. Representatives from AUN-HPN include the Executive Director of AUN-HPN and the Acting Director of ASEAN Institute for Health Development (AIHD), Mahidol University, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Chuthamanee Suthisisang; Deputy Executive Director of AUN-HPN and Acting Deputy Director for Administration at AIHD, Mahidol University, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Thunwadee Suksaroj; General Administration Officer at the AUN-HPN Secretariat Office, AIHD, Mahidol University, Ms. Kamonchat Jantarat; and Researcher at the AUN-HPN Secretariat Office, AIHD, Mahidol University, Ms. Jariya Sriklad.

After the assessment process, the AUN-HPN delegation visited locations at UI, including the Faculty of Public Health, Vocational Schools, Satellite Clinics, and Sports Facilities, to see the health facilities, especially those related to physical activity and disabled facilities. The AUN-HPN delegation also visited the Integrated Development Post in the UI Administration Center Lobby.

The Integrated Development Post is a health inspection post that is held regularly every two months. The Satellite Clinic initiated this program by adopting the existing health system at the community health center to be implemented on campus. This program aims to monitor UI residents’ health and ensure they are in a good health system. Besides checking vital signs, such as pulse, blood pressure, body temperature, and oxygen saturation, examinations were carried out to measure blood pressure, blood sugar, cholesterol, and uric acid. Patients can also undergo lung function tests (spirometry) and have direct health consultations with a doctor.
