Our teams are working with government ministries to support emergency preparedness programmes in Indonesia.

We are working together with the Ministry of Health Crisis Centre to strengthen the emergency preparedness and response capacity in Indonesia. This project works to strengthen emergency responses through better health data management, increased mental health support, and expanded environmental health services.

MSF in Indonesia in 2023 Médecins Sans Frontières activities in Indonesia are focused on building emergency response capacity through training and direct support when necessary.

Throughout 2023, our E-Hub project, set up in 2022 to strengthen emergency response capacity, developed and delivered a first series of training courses on mental health awareness and psychosocial support; medical waste management in healthcare facilities; organisation of healthcare services; treatment of cases of methanol poisoning; and the use of geographical information systems in emergencies.

We ran these courses for healthcare workers and community emergency responders in Jakarta and Banten provinces. This first year of project implementation concluded with a workshop with the Ministry of Health, provincial and district health authorities, and other collaborating partners to review the programme achievements and challenges. We plan to extend these activities to other provinces in the coming years.

During the last two months of 2023, we saw a significant increase in the number of Rohingya refugees arriving by boat in Indonesia, with more than 1,700 disembarking in Aceh and North Sumatra. Authorities, local communities and organisations provided accommodation and vital services. We monitored the situation closely in case it was needed for our teams to intervene.
