Mohammad Afzal Mahmood, Prof Gustaaf Dekker, Prof Budi Santoso, Ismi Mufidah, Dr Ardian Cahya Laksana, Dr Budi Prasatyo, Dr Hud Suhargono, Ms. Masitah, Dr Hanifa Erlin, Dr Rizki Pranadyan, Dr Pandu Habibi, and teams across 6 districts. A collaborative project with Universitas Airlangga and provincial and district departments of health across two provinces of Indonesia. This participatory development initiative is based in 6 hospitals and departments in Kukar, Balikpapan, Samarinda, Pasuruan, Tuban and Jombang districts. The project is funded by Australia-Indonesia Institute DFAT with co-contributions by the University of Adelaide, Universitas Airlangga and participating districts.
Based on our team's extensive maternal health research in Indonesia, this project is being implemented from early 2022, with a focus on quality of care change initiatives in 6 districts of East Java and East Kalimantan. Aim is to improve quality of care at hospitals and primary care centres, through strengthening organisational and functional links between departments of health, primary care centres and hospitals, improved teamwork, application of technology to decrease delays in managing deteriorating patients, improved communication between providers, and application of standard operating procedures for evidence-based care. With support by public health, obstetrics, midwifery, health system specialists at the two universities, 6 teams (each comprising of health managers, obstetricians and midwives) identified and prioritised issues impacting quality at their respective hospitals and districts and identified and implemented locally relevant strategies and solutions.
