Project Officer (Human Health/VAHSI[1])

 Project Officer (Human Health/VAHSI[1])

Program Background
The Australia Indonesia Health Security Partnership (AIHSP) is a 5-year program supported by the Australian Government and implemented by Cardno. AIHSP’s overarching goal is to increase national health security in Indonesia so that women, men and communities are less at risk of emerging infectious diseases (EIDs), thereby contributing to Australian, regional and global health security as well as supporting sustainable economic development and food security in Indonesia. To support the achievement of this goal, AIHSP will work in partnership with Indonesian Ministry of Health (MoH), Ministry of Agriculture (MoA) and other relevant agencies and Government of Australia to achieve the following ‘End-of-Program Outcomes’ (EOPOs):

  1. Stronger GoI systems to prevent, detect and respond to public health and animal health emergencies from EIDs; and
  2. Stronger national coordination of responses to national, regional and global health threats.

In addition to these longer-term objectives, over the next two years, AIHSP also supports the Indonesian government in responding to COVID-19 pandemic, particularly around strengthening the ‘Track and Trace’ system and supporting the rollout-out of COVID-19 vaccines to the worst affected provinces, including Central Java, Yogyakarta, Bali and South Sulawesi (priority provinces under AIHSP with high COVID-19 burden). These will be conducted through strengthening public communications and surveillance and health information systems at the community level.

Gender equality, disability and social inclusion (GEDSI) are important components of the program. Understanding how health security impacts on women and men from different backgrounds and contexts will support AIHSP to integrate GEDSI considerations into its activity planning and implementation.
