In the release speech, Dr. Sabrina stressed that PBL activities aim to identify health problems that exist in the local village, recognize health resources available, know health risk factors found in the local village. “Then also intervene and recommend solutions that will be used as a reference for solving existing health problems,” she said, as quoted by the UI website.
