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 expanding the overall use of family planning, particularly Long-Acting and Permanent Methods (LAPM).

In 2016, 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 incorporate family planning in the government’s new Kampung KB program, a mechanism to achieve the country’s Family Planning 2020 commitment.

In the tabs below, review AFP Indonesia’s Key Contacts, their Advocacy Wins to date, Indonesia’s Evidence & Briefs, and Milestones toward achieving family planning goals.


Case Study: Indonesian Advocacy Working Groups Revitalize Family Planning Efforts at the District Level

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.

Avec un solide parcours en planification familiale et une implication remarquée des leaders nationaux sur le sujet, l’Indonésie laisse présager un avenir prometteur vers l’accomplissement de ses engagements de Planification Familiale 2020 (PF2020) et de ses objectifs nationaux. Mais le pays fait face à un défi de taille: promouvoir cet engagement dans les gouvernements décentralisés. En raison de la décentralisation et déconcentration des pouvoirs, de nombreuses décisions concernant le budget et les programmes sont prises par les décideurs locaux dans plus de 500 districts et municipalités.


Local-Level Budget Allocations

  • District family planning budgets increase in 4 districts in the 2013/2014 fiscal year.
    • Bandung by 51% to 11.7 billion IDR (US $994,000).
    • Bogor by 62% to 25 billion IDR (US $2.13 million).
    • Karanganyar by 37% to 901 million IDR (US $77,000).
    • Karawang by 36% to 8.5 billion IDR (US $724,000).
  • 271 villages in Bandung allocated a portion of their village budgets to family planning activities: Indonesian Rupiah (IDR) 5-15 million (US $412 to $1200) per village.
  • Family planning field workers, midwives associations, local universities, and religious leaders sign partnership agreements with district working groups in Karanganyar, Lumajang, Tuban, Kediri, Lombok Timur, and Sumbawa.
  • Twenty work places agree to provide referrals for long-acting and permanent methods in Pontianak district, expanding private sector workplace commitment to family planning, for a total of 45 workplaces in 2013/14
  • Karanganyar District Government allocates IDR 15,000,000 (US $1,500) per year to support operations of its district working group, the first self-funded AFP Indonesia working group.
  • Under the Government of Indonesia’s KB Kencana Program, AFP Indonesia expands to an additional 30 districts in four provinces on a cost-share basis with BKKBN: $230,960 USD from AFP and $1.2 million from BKKBN.
  • Lombok Barat and Lombok Timur District Mayors sign an endorsement letter instructing village heads to allocate IDR 500,000 (US $50) per village per year in their 2015 village budgets for family planning activities. This applies to all 254 villages in Lombok Timur and 119 villages in Lombok Barat.

Institutionalizing and Implementing Family Planning Commitment

  • District family planning budgets increase in 5 districts in the 2013/2014 fiscal year:
    • Bandung by 14% to 7.7 billion IDR (US $748,000).
    • Bogor by 48% to 15.4 billion IDR (approx. US $1.5 million).
    • Karanganyar by 156% to 655 million IDR (US $64,000).
    • Karawang by 11% to 6.24 billion IDR (US $606,000)
    • Pontianak by 14% to 4.91 billion IDR (US $477,000).
  • Over 100,000 Nurse Midwifes who provide three-quarters of all family planning services are included as “covered” providers under the 2014 universal health insurance scheme, creating an important protection for rural women’s access to contraception.
  • District mayors in Karawang, Bogor, Kediri, Tuban, and Lamongan, Sumbawa, Lombok Timur, and Lombok Barat districts issue mayoral decrees to institutionalize AFP-initiated district working groups, creating a sustainable funded mechanism to use evidence to guide district planning and budgets.

Progress Between 2009-2012

  • District family planning budgets increase in two districts in the 2012/2013 fiscal year
    • Bandung 20% from 2011 to 6.74 billion IDR (US$710,000).
    • Pontianak district by 60% from 2011 to 4.31 billion IDR (US$454,000).
  • 270 Bandung village leaders allocate a village budget for family planning for the first time.
  • 25 companies in Pontianak commit to implement workplace family planning counseling and/or services.
  • Pembinaan Kesejahteraan Keluarga (PKK, a local women’s organization) field workers and Posyandu midwives trained on counseling for long-acting and permanent methods (LAPM).
  • Maternal health care social insurance program (Jampersal) includes subsidies for intrauterine devices and implants.
