Jakarta, November 5th,2022 – PT United Tractors Tbk (UT), in collaboration with UT Health Management held a health webinar with the theme “Beware of Acute Kidney Failure in Children” as a response to the increasing number of children with acute kidney failure. This activity aims to increase understanding and awareness of acute kidney failure and straighten out hoax news in the community about the disease.
This seminar was part of the health CSR program called UTCARE (United Tractors for Community Health Responsibility), which is the Company’s commitment to realizing sustainability and positive contribution to society through the implementation of ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance).

Rurynta Ferly Shavira, M.Farm, a pharmacist who is also a lecturer at UIN Jakarta. This event provides education and detailed information related to acute kidney failure cases, including signs and symptoms, causes of the disease, how to cure it, and an explanation of the number of cases in Indonesia.
“75% of patients with acute kidney failure are children aged 0 to 5 years. This is because a child’s kidney size is very small, which is 5 cm, so when a small wound appears, it will have a major effect on kidney function. Therefore, prevention efforts are prioritized through vaccination and maintaining hygiene,” said dr. Fitria Mahrunnisa M.Sc., Sp.A. “In handling cases of kidney failure, it is better to buy medicine through official places such as pharmacies, hospitals, health centers, and online stores that already have a license for the Electronic Pharmacy System Operation (PSEF). In addition, we need to be aware to check the packaging, labels, marketing permits regularly, and drugs expiration period, ” said apt Rurynta Ferly Shavira, M.Farm.
With the increasing cases of acute kidney failure in Indonesia, UT carried out the event, as a forum for the public to increase and encourages people to be more vigilant to prevent kidney failure.
