AIPMNH supports the Government of Indonesia's (GoI) efforts to attain the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), MDGs 4 and 5* in particular. The Program focuses on three components to improve the health of mothers and newborns in NTT.
Service Delivery and Community Engagement supports local provincial and district government to implement NTT's Revolusi KIA, or Mother and Child Health Revolution initiative, with an emphasis on service provision (supply) and community engagement (demand). Through Service Delivery, the program aims to improve the ability of midwives, nurses and doctors to better manage complications and emergencies during delivery in health care centres and hospitals. Through Community Engagement, the program works with local community groups and local government to raise awareness on maternal and neonatal health (MNH), improve health-seeking behaviours and generate more demand within communities for better MNH-related services.
Health Systems Support addresses the systemic aspects of Revolusi KIA and provides support to local government in public administration reform. The objective is for provincial and district government agencies and communities to access and manage the technical, financial and human resources needed to achieve improvements in MNH.
Systems Reform in Performance and Accountability moves beyond systems strengthening and management capacity building to address the fundamental drivers of the system that impact performance. It also addresses the need for accountability of resources used by communities, local Parliament and donors. The objective is for provincial and district governments to manage GoI and donor resources to improve accountability, performance, accessibility and sustainability of health services.
