Jakarta (ANTARA) –

Indonesian Deputy Minister of Health Dante Saksono Harbuwono highlighted significant progress in the health sector, achieved through collaboration with foreign partners.

One area of ​​success is tuberculosis (TB) screening and treatment. He said that Indonesia had experienced significant improvements in TB surveillance. In 2023, 816,000 new TB cases were detected, or more than 77 percent of the estimated 1 million cases.

“By collaborating with the community and health cadres, we have screened more than 2.2 million people at high risk of TB,” he said at the 2024 Indonesia Health Partners Meeting in Jakarta, Wednesday.

He emphasized that Indonesia has encouraged innovation in TB diagnosis by producing five PCR-based TB detection kits and utilizing 1,000 PCR laboratories to expand surveillance during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Indonesia also ensures that TB treatment is accessible to everyone,” said Harbuwono.

Indonesia is one of the first countries in Asia to launch BPaL and BPaLM treatment, known as short-term oral regimens for drug-resistant TB, he added. Indonesia is also supporting research to create shorter treatment regimens for drug-sensitive TB.

The Ministry of Health engages the community through the TB Army, a trained community of TB survivors who helps detect and monitor missing drug-resistant TB patients.

Harubuwono said this achievement was thanks to collaboration with the Global Fund, United States Agency for International Development (USAID), World Health Organization (WHO), and United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF).

The meeting also discussed advances in cardiovascular care.

Collaborative efforts, such as the Emirates-Indonesia Cardiology Hospital in Solo, demonstrate the positive impact of overseas partnerships. This environmentally friendly hospital with a capacity of 100 beds is proof of the success of this collaboration.

In addition, Harapan Kita National Heart Center is partnering with Japan’s Tokushukai Medical Group to build a cardiovascular center equipped with state-of-the-art facilities.

Indonesia has also integrated immunization activities with the WhatsApp messaging application. This innovation allows the public to immediately receive an immunization certificate and educational information after vaccination.

In addition, the Ministry of Health’s Indonesiaku Sehat (ASIK) Application has also been integrated with WhatsApp so that health workers can detect and record stunting cases periodically.
