Highlights

  • The socioeconomic crisis triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic has shown us that the social assistance system in Indonesia needs to be improved in order to respond to crises caused by a nonnatural disaster.
  • Lack of coordination and synchronization in the data collection and management of the information of social assistance beneficiaries and in the distribution of assistance are at the root of all problems that the central government still cannot solve holistically.

This study aims to examine non-communicable diseases (NCDs) multimorbidity level and its relation to households’ socioeconomic characteristics, health service use, catastrophic health expenditures and productivity loss. This study used panel data of the Indonesian Family Life Survey conducted in 2007 (Wave 4) and 2014 (Wave 5). The original sampling frame was based on 13 out of 27 provinces in 1993, representing 83% of the Indonesian population. We included respondents aged 50 years and above in 2007, excluding those who did not participate in both Waves 4 and 5.

  •  Almost 69 million Indonesian students face a significant risk of loss in learning during government-mandated school closures to prevent Covid-19 transmission. Some groups of students, mainly high achieving students from highly educated parents, are however better protected, implying that learning inequality is likely to widen under such conditions.
  • Only 40% of Indonesians have internet access (which is critical for home-based learning), and this will exacerbate learning inequality, especially outside of Java.
