E-posters - Fourth Global Symposium on Health Systems Research 2016

We are proud to announce that our research abstracts (supported by UNICEF) has been selected as e-posters in the Fourth Global Symposium on Health Systems Research, November 14-18, 2016, Vancouver, BC, Vancouver Convention Centre. The poster was part of a group of 564 e-posters that were selected by the Health Systems Global.

The first poster titled “Consequences of Universal Healthcare Scheme on Local Health Financing: Indonesia’s Experience” explains what is happening with the local health financing schemes in the transition to the universal health coverage in Indonesia. This study mainly adopts a qualitative approach to analyze conditions at national and local levels of Indonesia in relation to JKN. Seven kabupaten/kota (districts) are selected for case studies. Conducting in-depth interviews and FGDs with local leaders, as well as a desk review of local health insurance schemes and regulations, this study tries to see how the integration into JKN is implemented.

The second poster titled “Protecting Poor Pregnant Mothers and Newborns in the Era of Universal Healthcare Scheme: Case of Indonesia“ highlighted financial barrier as one of the main constraints for the Indonesian poor to access the maternal, newborn, and child health (MNCH) services. This study investigates how JKN covers the worst-off women and children to access the MNCH services in seven selected kabupaten/kota. 

The Global Symposia on Health Systems Research is organized every two years by Health Systems Global to bring together the full range of players involved in health systems and policy research and practice. Beginning with the First Global Symposium in Montreux in 2010, the Symposia have played a crucial, catalytic role in convening a global community dedicated to strengthening health systems and building the field of health systems research.
