Protecting Non-COVID Essential Health Services-Indonesia
The COVID-19 pandemic posed unprecedented challenges to health systems across the world. Many non -COVID essential health services were severely disrupted during the pandemic, leading to significant impact on the lives of citizens. These services include peri-natal health services, immunisation for children under five and school age children, sexual and reproductive health services, screening and ongoing care for key communicable and non-communicable diseases, as well as mental health services.
The Government of Indonesia (GOI) made a significant financial investment in its COVID-19 health response with the aim of maintaining the quality provision of non-COVID essential health services. The aim of this project is to understand the effectiveness of efforts to curtail the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and associated public health measures on the utilization of non-COVID essential health services in Indonesia. The study will also explore the challenges associated with the protection and adaptation of these services, innovative approaches introduced, as well as lessons learned, to inform ongoing and future epidemic preparedness and responses efforts in the country.
