About

The high mortality rate of children under five is a key concern in Indonesia, where there is limited access to maternal and child healthcare facilities, particularly for those living in rural areas. Jetstar’s support of this project helps improve access to antenatal, postnatal and nutritional care for mothers and their children – reducing child mortality rates and improving overall health and wellbeing.

OBJECTIVES

– Improved community health workers’ management practices of childhood illnesses.

– Improved maternal and infant feeding practices and nutrition.

– Improved access to community-based maternal, newborn and child health services and community-based prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV.

– Strengthened district health system in its ability to support community-based health services.
