Higher education as a place of activity for students as well as lecturers and education staff has enormous potential to support the formation of healthy living behaviors and become agents of change in clean and healthy living behavior.

Through this healthy campus program, it is hoped that it can trigger the independence of higher education's active participation and response in dealing with the phenomenon of health impacts for the surrounding community. Udayana University was chosen to be one of the pilot campuses to implement a healthy campus at the university level and has received special socialization and briefing from the Indonesian Ministry of Health.
