From the data collected for the Papua Province scale, historically Jayapura regency was categorized as rabies free. But the threat coem of islands close to Papua, who deliberately entered with their pets so as not to close the possibility of danger of rabies a threat to the people of Jayapura district.

“For the time being we are rabies-free, the data we gather to support the province’s data for rabies-free status is just that we are now in a position to be threatened with rabies because the islands closest to Papua are rabies-positive areas, “explained Adorfina in Sentani, Tuesday (October 17).

Described, there has been no report related to the survey and examination of dog’s stamp in this area. It is only worried that if this dog from outside successfully made it into this area then rabies virus will be directly infected to dog or other pets like cat.

“Many racially ousted dogs are feared to have a serious impact on the spread of rabies in this area, we expect a report of findings from the public or other parties to the spread of rabies.” Our constant efforts will be to take samples on pets or by conducting a direct examination in every home citizen who have pets, “he said.

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. (*)
