With a strong track record in family planning and engagement of national leaders, Indonesia shows promise in meeting its Family Planning 2020 commitments and national goals. But it also faces a significant challenge: fostering that engagement at lower levels of government. Due to decentralization and devolution of government authority, many budgeting and programmatic decisions are made by decisionmakers in more than 500 districts and municipalities.

In Indonesia almost 62% of married women use contraceptives, and the government is strongly committed to family planning. Together, these factors have helped to improve economic growth and reduce poverty in the country of 250 million people. However, progress has stagnated in recent years.
AFP’s Indonesian partners, the Johns Hopkins Center for Communication Programs Indonesia (CCP-Indonesia) and Yayasan Cipta Cara Padu (YCCP), work closely at the national and subnational levels to revitalize the family planning program by increasing funding for family planning and to expanding the overall use of family planning, particularly Long-Acting and Permanent Methods (LAPM).
In 2015, AFP’s specific advocacy priorities include addressing policy barriers to the implementation of the new universal health insurance program, JKN, and prioritizing family planning in village budgets. In addition, CCP-Indonesia and YCCP are working closely with the National Population and Family Planning Board of Indonesia (BKKBN) to scale up the AFP Indonesia approach through the government’s KB Kencana program, a mechanism to achieve the country’s Family Planning 2020 commitment.
