ASRI works to conserve the biodiversity of tropical rain forests by meeting the health and economic needs of surrounding communities. Since 2007, ASRI has worked near Gunung Palung National Park (GPNP), a 108,000-hectare rain forest in western Borneo that serves as home to 5-10% of the world’s remaining orangutans and a watershed for 60,000 people. The ASRI Clinic, and our future hospital, provides high-quality, discounted health care to local communities in exchange for commitments to forest conservation. ASRI is a world-renowned organization that has been recognized with multiple awards globally and within Indonesia including the Kalpataru Award. Our integrated work with human health and conservation has brought about a dramatic decline in logging. In 2018, ASRI expanded to a second site: Bukit Baka Bukit Raya National Park (BBBRNP), a 181,090-hectare rainforest in central Borneo, critical for orangutan reintroduction. ASRI’s Planetary Health model will soon be replicated by its sister organization, Health in Harmony (HIH), in Madagascar and Brazil.

ASRI aimed to continue to grow all over Indonesia. Generous grants from foundations, corporations, and individuals, are the cornerstone of this growth. Working with HIH, we have a successful track record of capturing a portfolio of conservation and health grants and are now ready to quickly expand this portfolio. Candidates with drive, a creative edge for grant capture, experience, and a high level of organization will be well suited for this position.  ASRI is a growing team of passionate individuals excited about working together and committed to supporting each other as we pursue our mission to create a healthy planet with healthy people.
