WHO in Indonesia
Founded on 7 April 1948, the World Health Organization (WHO) is an organization consisted of 194 member states. While WHO gives guidance on global health matters, it is the member states that decide on global policies to address global health concerns through an annual assembly mechanism.
Through its country offices, the organization provides technical supports to the government of the member states. Additionally, supports are also given by WHO’s 6 regional offices and headquarters. Independently, Indonesia opted to be in the South East Asia Region with other 10 countries including Thailand and India when it joined WHO on 23 May 1950.
Currently, the collaboration between the WHO Country Office to Indonesia (WHO Indonesia) with the Government of Indonesia, represented mainly by the Ministry of Health, are covering 5 categories (communicable and noncommunicable diseases, promoting health through the life-course, development of health system particularly on policies, and preparedness, surveillance and response).
The specific focused areas are control of tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS, malaria, vaccine preventable diseases, mental health, injuries prevention, nutrition and prevention of noncommunicable diseases. Other collaboration areas include developing he quality of mother and child care, healthy ageing, food safety, human resources, medicines, health systems information, international health regulations, epidemic, pandemic disease and emergencies response.
On 1st January 2014 Indonesia launched a national health insurance programme called Jaminan Kesehatan Nasional (JKN). With Universal Health Coverage is one focus WHO endorses, WHO Country Office for Indonesia is supporting the country to reach full population coverage by 2019.
Understanding how health always intertwines with other sectors, WHO also collaborates with other partners. Within the UN system, WHO works with other UN agencies through the United Nations Partnership for Development Framework (UNPDF).
