Moving the Needle for Private Sector Engagement in MNH in Indonesia

Edhie Santosa Rahmat

Abstract

A comprehensive assessment for Private sector engagement in Maternal and Neonatal Health care (MNH care) was done in 9 Indonesia provinces in 2016. The objective of the assessment is to map all existing and those private sectors who would like to engage in the MNH care after the introduction of Universal Health Coverage, called as Jaminan Kesehatan Nasional (JKN), in Indonesia. This is important as Indonesia is still challenged by high maternal and neonatal mortalities as compared to peer countries with similar economic development. While the private sector is growing in recent years, information on their characteristics and behaviors toward MNH care is limited. This assessment provides a comprehensive analysis of the existing private sector, their behavior toward JKN, what the private investors' willingness and challenges to invest in the MNH care, and what type of services that they are going to enter in the near future. This study also recommend to the Ministry of Health and other sector in how to provide good regulatory environment and to incentivize their present to help the country to meet the people demand due to JKN expansion, in particular in the MNH care.
