Indonesia’s middle-income population is on the rise, its democracy continues to become more open, and its economy continues to grow. Despite these positive developments, it has yet to take a similar lead on many health issues, especially in maternal and newborn health (MNH). With the roll-out of JKN—the national health insurance scheme targeted to achieve universal coverage by 2019—there is both urgency and opportunity to leverage Indonesia’s robust private sector, civil society, media, and academic institutions for their expertise and resources to improve MNH outcomes.
This report summarizes the landscape of opportunities available to the private sector and civil society organizations to initiate an MNH movement, and details new and innovative approaches to address the barriers that have previously prevented health improvements. Through a series of interviews, the study team identified opportunities for private investors to bring market opportunities into reality. The snapshots included in the report’s annex lay out these opportunities specifically for the following nine priority provinces: North Sumatra, West Java, Central Java, East Java, South Sulawesi, North Maluku, Maluku, West Papua, and Papua. Additionally, the report details a number of entry points for private sector, civil society, media, and academic actors—each of whom has a role to play. By assembling actors from all sectors in a holistic approach, Indonesia can ignite change on MNH.
