Australia Indonesia Partnership for Maternal and Neonatal Health
Australia’s support to eastern Indonesia's health system aims to:
- increase the number of women giving birth with the help of skilled birth attendants
- increase the number of women using health facilities to give birth
- help reduce malaria and anaemia among mothers, and
- fund district health offices to provide the services required by their communities.
The program also helps to build awareness among the community of what services are available to them at health facilities. At least 36,000 pregnant women and 37,000 babies are expected to benefit from this program.
Results to date
- More than 5,000 health workers and volunteers have been trained to support childbirth. This is approximately half of health workers and volunteers in the province.
- 24 public birthing wards have been renovated in East Nusa Tenggara, which has contributed to twice the number of births taking place at the clinics where data has been collected. This has helped save the lives of many women and babies.
The following documents describe in more detail the Australia Indonesia Partnership for Maternal and Neonatal Health initiative*. Documents are uploaded as the initiative progresses. Find out
more about the aid management cycle and the documents you can expect to find.
*AusAID is committed to publishing documents and data concerning Australia’s official development assistance in a way that is comprehensive, accessible and current. Information published on the Indonesia Program is currently not complete and further initiatives will be added over the course of the next few months. The AusAID practice will be to publish documents once finalised and where appropriate after the partner government and any other partners directly involved in the delivery of the initiative have been consulted. Not all material published on this site is created by AusAID and therefore not all documents reflect the views of the Australian Government. In limited circumstances some information may be withheld for reasons including privacy and commercial sensitivity. An important objective of the Transparency Initiative is to promote broad-based understanding, analysis and discussion of aid issues and to inform the future delivery of Australia’s aid program.
