Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2014
This description of Purnawan Budisetia's work was prepared when Purnawan Budisetia was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2014.
Despite the growing number of disability in Indonesia, prevention measures have not been taken into consideration. Purnawan Budisetia is working on preventing disability caused by certain congenital birth defects resulting from intermarriage. He does this by working within the traditional culture of Balinese religion.
