2021 Indonesia Update



2021 Indonesia Update. In sickness and in health: diagnosing Indonesia

Although Indonesia has made significant improvements on many health outcomes over the last six decades, several key indicators have been disappointing compared to those of other countries at a similar stage of economic development, even before the COVID-19 pandemic. The conference will examine the extent to which Indonesia’s health system has succeeded in dealing with the many challenges it faces and, more importantly, what Indonesia needs to do to ensure faster progress. In addition, it will address other crucial questions such as those related to nutrition and epidemiological transitions, and the attempt to offset the degree to which income inequality results in unequal access to health care.

This is an online event held over three half-days.

All sessions will be recorded.
