Capacity Building for Community in Selopamioro Village, Imogiri District, Bantul District, Yogyakarta, through Land Optimization and Biopharmaceutical Products
Herbal beverage products are part of the Indonesian cultural heritage, providing health benefits for generations. The Covid-19 pandemic has encouraged all parties to find solutions to handle and prevent the spread of the virus. One of the many efforts is using herbal medicine to increase the body's immunity. The purpose of this community service activity was to provide counseling on the role of herbal beverage products in increasing the immune system to maintain body health in the community, especially the members of the women farmers’ group or Kelompok Wanita Tani (KWT) Lestari Maju in Selopamioro Village, Imogiri District, Bantul Regency, Special Region of Yogyakarta. The counseling participants were provided with direct materials on the role of herbal beverage products in increasing the body's immune system, followed by active discussions. The average pre-test and post-test scores of extension participants increased by 25%. This result indicates an increase in participants' knowledge about the role of herbal beverage products in increasing immunity. It is hoped that in the future, community assistance can be implemented in the manufacture of herbal medicine to increase immunity. In addition, it can provide knowledge and independent skill to prevent disease, especially for the people of Selopamioro Village, Imogiri District, Bantul Regency, Yogyakarta.
