PUBLIC HEALTH JOB VACANCIES: Transform Health National Coordinating Partner-Indonesia Harnessing Digital Technology and the Use of Data to support the Achievement of Universal Health Cover agein 2030
Ikatan Ahli Kesehatan Masyarakat Indonesia (IAKMI) is an independent public health professional organization dedicated to achieving Health for All. IAKMI's vision is to address public health problems with innovation, research-based solutions and community empowerment in pursuing a better health future. Founded in 1971, IAKMI has branches in 34 provinces and more than 36,000 members who work in government, NGOs, universities and the private sector.
IAKMI is selected as the National Coordinating Partner - Indonesia in the Transform Health funding period of 2021-2023 to develop a national coalition platform and coordinate national campaign efforts for harnessing digital technology and the use of health data to support the achievement of UHC in 2030.
Globally and in many countries, the pace of progress towards Universal Health Coverage (UHC) has slowed over the past decade. It is projected that by 2030, only half of the world's population will have access to primary health care services. This will result in billions of people falling into poverty, unreliable and relatively expensive healthcare, limiting their access to quality health care and increasing their vulnerability to both communicable and non-communicable diseases.
Transform Health was formed to answer this challenge by bringing together local, regional and global stakeholders from various sectors who are dedicated to achieving UHC in the digital age. Transform Health conducts campaigns and collaborates with individuals - particularly women and young people and the communities who will most benefit from the digital transformation of the health system, as well as governments, organizations and institutions that recognize and support the role of technology and digital data for better health.
Transform Health builds a global movement that brings together organizations and institutions in various sectors that are committed to achieving UHC in the next ten years by expanding the use of digital technology and increasing access to data. The Coalition is committed to promoting youth and women's participation and leadership and ensuring that the perspectives, concerns and needs of marginalized groups are adequately addressed so that they can benefit from digital transformation, as well as access and control their own data to improve their health.
IAKMI’s Strategy aims at building consensus on the tools, approaches, processes and resources necessary to accelerate the adoption of digital technology to achieve UHC, that include: (i) provide empirical evidences for policy change; (ii) developing strong pressure groups for achieving UHC; (iii) increasing the capacity of youth, women and marginalized community organizations through training and workshops; (iv) implement and support advocacy for adopting and implementing a global normative framework on digital health and data governance based on human rights at national level; (v) generating focused campaigns around public health issues to improve health outcomes.
IAKMI also will collaborates with individuals and communities who would benefit most from the digital transformation of health systems, as well as the governments, organisations and institutions who recognize and support the fundamental role of digital technologies and data for improved health.
Strategy in the first year will be conducted in three steps: establishing the national coalition platform, planning process and outreach and engagement.
