A Focus on Capacity Building for Indonesia’s Future Health Diplomats

Indonesia, a G20 member state and the largest economy in Southeast Asia, is an example of an emerging player within global health diplomacy. For instance, the country recently hosted the Global Health Security Agenda (GHSA) ministerial meeting in November 2018, which was followed by events such as its chairmanship of the GHSA in 2016 and the Global Fund board in 2013. The growing role of Indonesia is politically and socially important given the population size of the country and its strategic geographical location, not to mention its increasing influence in wider global governance.

" Following the success of its two trainings, INDOHUN in 2019 will hold the third edition of the Global Health Diplomacy training with a focus on “Disaster Management issues.” The GHD batch 3 was held in Ciloto, West Java (April 4-12, 2019) in collaboration with Center for Health Training (BBPK Ciloto), Ministry of Health of Indonesia. The training was accredited by the government and will be adopted as one of the mandatory requirements for the head of each health district. "
