Papua’s legislator: Free from rubella and measles shouldn’t be a media campaign only

Jayapura, Jubi – The Vice Chairwoman of the Commission V of the Papua House of Representative for Health and Education Maria Duwitau warned the provincial government not set a goal for Papuan children to be free from rubella and measles only on media.

She further said it is difficult to actualise this goal if the access to health services including the regular immunisation program has not been optimal since it has not reached remote areas yet.

“There is a query that should be answered immediately before the government’s commitment to free a million of children from the threat of rubella and measles,” said Duwitau on Thursday (7/6/2018).

Furthermore, she said if the Papua Provincial Government really committed to this goal, they should optimise the health services including the regular immunisation program by developing the local health facilities.

Meanwhile, the Head of Papua’s Health Office Aloysius Giyai admitted that this province still has a problem with the regular immunisation program. The participation rate is below 80 per cent in most districts, which is under the national target.

“Even in some districts with high participation rate, the Universal Child Immunisation (UCI) rate is also below 80 per cent,” said Giyai. (*)

Jayapura, Jubi – Papuan legislator John Gobay discussed on the potential of local food and the right to local food eating with indigenous women merchants at the third floor of the Papuan Traditional Market Building, Jayapura City.
“It is very critical to improve the quality of products and promotion of local food,” said Gobay during the public hearing with Papuan women merchants on Friday (25/5/18).

He also addressed the government’s program such as the rice-for-poor program can elicit the dependence of Papuans towards rice and make them forget their staple food gradually, whereas the quality of tubers is better than rice.

As a legislator, Gobay currently supports the regional regulation to protect and control local food. “It certainly protects farmers, fishermen and cattlemen as well as indigenous merchants at once,” he said.

A merchant in traditional market Gerfasia Mote said the quality of local fruits, vegetables, fish and tubers in Papua is as good as the imported products. “But it doesn’t attract customers. Less number of customers coming to the market is the evidence,” said Mote who has been selling vegetables and fruits for years.

Why customers lack the interest buying local food? It may have a connection with people’s misunderstanding and a lack of publication about the potential of local food. In this case, Mote agreed if there is a rule to govern the future of indigenous merchants in Papua. (*)
