Everywhere in Indonesia, the majority of people have no access to free medical care, 90% of people don’t have health insurance. Indonesia’s health system is failing to provide even the most basic care to vast swathes of the population.
Many who can not afford doctors’ fees often receive no treatment at all, while the wealthy fly abroad for a check-up. The system is plagued by under-funding, decentralisation, lack of qualified staff, rising medical costs and outdated medical equipment.
The health system desperately needs improvement, and there are no laws that protect the patient. For most of Indonesia’s more than 260 million inhabitants, even the lowest quality healthcare is often inaccessible. Even in Bali and around Bali, some islands or remote mountain villages can be inaccessible for months at a time during the monsoon season.
However « free » medical care facilities exist, but generally, these structures are not sufficiently equipped with medical equipment, medical goods or drugs. Also, very often, they don’t hire enough staff. These structures can not support patients for severe or complicate cases, then, they are referred to hospitals that are too expensive for an immense majority of the population. Indonesian hospitals are even known to keep patients “hostage” until family members can settle their bills.
Access to a portion of sufficient food and access to medical care remains a growing problem in Indonesia, despite a growing economy.
In this country where the rich expatriates make a lot of money (but almost never gives back anything to those who need it most), from more or less legal touristic activities, as we can realise it in the context of the Fair Future Foundation public health & Medical Care activities, and as we see almost every day, the local people, remain very vulnerable to food insecurity, malnutrition and can not, for a vast majority, have access to basic health & medical care.
In Indonesia (including the area of Bali), has the fifth-highest number of stunted children in the world. More than one out of every three children (or 37%) are stunted. That means 9.5 million children under five are malnourished and don’t have any access to Health Care. More than three million (or 12%) of children under five years of age in Indonesia suffer from wasting. Almost two out of every three children under two years of age, (or 57%), in rural areas are anaemic.
Only 42% of children aged less than six months are exclusively breastfed, and only 36% of children consume appropriate complementary food.
Malnutrition costs dozen’s of millions of $US annually, due to lost productivity as the result of poor education standard and diminishing physical capability. This is why you can help them with a little $1.- per day! This thanks to our access to water projects, electricity, education in healthy living, harmonious power and of course provide improved access to education, health and live better together!
