Jayapura, Jubi – The Jayapura Public Hospital (RSUD Jayapura) would require Rp300 billion in 2017 to meet their requirements for supporting equipment, the head of the Papua Provincial Health Office drg. Aloysius Giyai said.

 
He said the budget could be realized, barring unforeseen circumstances.
The Director of RSUD Jayapura, he said, already presented the hospital’s requirements in front of Minister of Health Nila F Moeloek and then Minister of Politic, Legal and Security Affairs Luhut Binsar Panjaitan.
“I also support this, now we are on going to realize it and if there’s no change everything would be realized in next year,” he told Jubi at his office.
However, said Giyai, Papua Health Office has budgeted Rp 143 billion for RSUD Jayapura to complete other facilities, including some to support medical specialists.
“Of course not all medical equipment could be provided in next year, but the most urgent is to provide the equipment to support the specialists first,” he said.
Assessing the performance of Josef Rinta, the new director of RSUD Jayapura, he said Rinta has made a breakthrough in improving the hospital that is currently becoming the national referral hospital.
“Honestly, we will evaluate the performance of the new director within next year, but looking at his performance at the beginning it’s quite good, because there are no complains like the previous years. It might be one or two complaints but it’s not as worse as the previous years,” he said.
Earlier, the Director of RSUD Jayapura, Josef Rinta said this hospital is the governmental agency under the Papua Provincial Government. Therefore, all the issues related to the procurement must be done through the Papua Provincial Government. He admitted to have communication with the governor and the equipment would be completed next year. (*/rom)

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. (*)

Sentani, Jubi – As the rapid growth of housing construction in the areas of Sentani Timur, Sentani and Waibhu, the Head of Integrated Permit and Regional Investment Agency of Jayapura District Henock Puraro said developers should administer the IMB (Construction Permit) first for new housing constructions.

Developers who want to build new housings need to arrange an agreement with the tenure of landowners first. Then, they should complete the legal aspect of their proposal,” Puraro told reporter in Jayapura Regent Office at Gunung Merah, Sentani on Thursday (31/5/2018).

He said his office would soon publish about the spatial planning to the public in regards to the ongoing regional development process. “We will publish the system of city spatial planning including the regulation related to housing construction,” he said.

Similarly, the Chairman of Chambers of Commerce and Industry for Jayapura District Henky Yoku said developers should consider the cultural, social and economic aspects of the local community.

“What is the impact of housing development on the local community? Developers cannot just build new housing then take a profit of it. They should take account of the sustainability of the local community who live surrounding the environment. Therefore there is a value added from this development,” he said. (*)
