IFC And MoH Join Forces To Support Indonesian Healthcare


A new collaboration will go on to support healthcare organisations as well as companies across Indonesia. Well, this comes as the International Finance Corporation, which happens to be a member of the World Bank Group, and the country’s ministry of health partner to go ahead with the launch of the Indonesian Health Sector Growth Programme.

The idea behind this is to fasten the efforts towards resilience and growth in the healthcare vertical while also making sure to attract a good amount of foreign funding and expertise so as to drive the economy after the pandemic.

As part of the MoU, the Indonesian Ministry of Health as well as the International Finance Corporation will look for new options to make private health sector project development across Indonesia more robust.

So as to offer early-stage support across the organisations within the pharmaceutical, medical technology, and vaccine gamut, IFC is going to aid the Indonesian companies by way of advisory services and also financing. Besides this, it will also collaborate with healthcare organisations of international repute in order to facilitate foreign direct investment.

The MoU went on to be inked by Director General Pharmaceutical and Medical Devices, L. Rizka Andalusia, Ministry of Home of Indonesia, and Regional Director for East Asia and the Pacific, Kim-See Lim, in the company of Buni Gunadi Sadikin, the country’s health minister, and the Managing Director of IFC, Makhtar Diop.
