Universal Health Coverage 2019 in Indonesia: The Integration of Family Planning Services in Current Functioning Health System

Abstract

Indonesia is currently on track to achieve Universal Health Coverage (UHC) by 2019. The country’s health insurance program aims to address issues of disintegration in the implementation and coverage of various health insurance schemes that used fragmented fund pooling for financing them. Under the UHC, family planning services is one of the benefit packages. However, little has been done to examine how family planning programs are appropriately managed across levels of governments and how family planning services are delivered to the end user. This study has been conducted through focus group discussions with related policy makers and selected programmers at the central and district levels. The study also benefits from related studies on family planning in the UHC scheme and other supporting data. The study carefully investigates some programmatic implications of the integration of family planning into the UHC program. An improvement in the regulatory frameworks and management considering the construction of the relationship between the central and district governments and across related institutions is noteworthy. Periodic studies highlighting the progress of program implementation is recommended. This would create opportunities for quick notification and problem solving discussions in the case of improper planning and implementation.
