Indonesia

Indonesia in South East Asia is the world's largest island country with over 261 million people. Life expectancy is 67 years for men and 71 years for women. Indonesia seeks effective decentralization and functioning of its health system. In line with the National Development Plan 2015-2019, the Health Strategy 2005-2025 with a Medium-term Health Strategy 2015-2019, places universal health coverage (UHC) and human resources for health as the priority. The Strategy targets to improve health outcomes through efforts in healthcare provision and community empowerment supported by both financial protection and healthcare equalization. Since January 2014, the national health insurance system (SJSN) implements the UHC agenda and promotes private health practitioners’ engagement with the public sector. The UHC Partnership (UHC-P) supports Indonesia in the development of a sustainable health development plan across all health-related sectors. Amongst other activities, the review of the national health strategic plan determines measures to scale up UHC to achieve an efficient national UHC roadmap and an effective health financing strategy by 2019.
