Yayasan ECONUSA Vacancy - Project Assistant

The novel coronavirus pandemic has been sweeping the world as well as reshaping everyone’s lives very rapidly in ways that very few people could have imagined. Unfortunately, for indigenous peoples and traditional forest populations around the globe unexpectedly suffer disproportionally and in different ways.

Covid-19 global pandemic has forced the world to take unimaginable measures and actions. Covid-19 has infected populations in 216 countries. Based on updated data of WHO on 02 July  2020, there are more than 2.5 million peoples are positively infected by Covid-19 and more than 500,000 died. In Indonesia, there have been 59,394 people are positive with Covid-19 and reported 2,987 death tolls.  

Similarly, it happened to the eastern parts of Indonesia. The Land of Papua is one of regions in Indonesia with large numbers of indigenous peoples with Covid-19-prone areas. There have been 1916 peoples reported with Covid-19 positive in Papua Province and 244 in West Papua. We could hardly overlook the figure noting that there are more than 300 native tribes live in the Land of Papua residing in forests, mountains, coastal areas and small islands.

The indigenous community is deemed the most vulnerable to Covid-19. Their communal lifestyle with high dependency on community members make them susceptible. Limited access to health facilities and remote condition for health workers to perform duty increases risk of fatality.
