Jayapura, Jubi – A Papua legislator, Nason Utti, recognized that public health services in several hospitals in Papua are poor. People often complain of not getting appropriate services as expected. He said he is currently tasked with improving services at hospitals.

“Our recent assignment is health services improvement. I admit the service is still poor. Many doctors think they are not well paid by the public hospitals, so many of them serve in private clinics,” Utti told on sunday (15/11/2015).

According to him, in order to improve the public health services in some regions, the Papua Governor Lukas Enembe made a policy to prompt the establishment of regional public hospitals in five customary areas, namely Saireri, Mamta, Lapago, Meepago and Anim Ha.
“For example, for Saireri customary area, the hospitals are built in Biak and Serui, while for Meepago customary area, the hospital is currently built in Nabire, but another hospitals would be built also in Paniai, Intan Jaya, Mimika, Deiyai and Dogiyai. And for Lapago customary area, Wamena Public Hospital, which is now on B Grade, was accelerated to get C and B Grades. It also applied for its surrounded areas, Merauke and Jayapura as well,” he said.

The hospital whose services are often got people’s complaints is Dok II Public Hospital, from the medical services to the stock of medicines. Some time ago, a patient Esye Karubuy complained of the exhaustion of the stock of medicines for patients at the Chemotherapy unit of this hospital. Due to many issues and complaints against the service of Dok II Public Hospital, the Papua Governor Lukas Enembe said he would restructure the hospital management.
“What has been complained against the Dok II Public Hospital must be a reality, so in the future we will structure it, from the manager to staffs of the hospital,” Enembe said in the mid September. (Arjuna Pademme/rom)

Sentani, Jubi – Director of Indigenous School of Jayapura District Origen Monim stated that he would pay attention to the rights of children studying at his school as it stands in an area declared as a child-friendly village.

“We have a guide about what indicator of a child-friendly village is, which was given by the Head of the Women Empowerment and Child Protection Office. So it would be our concern,” said Monim in Sentani on Tuesday (09/11/2018).

He further explained that the indigenous school runs their activities every day, from 14:00 to 16:30 Papua time, and a speedboat provided to pick up students to school.

“So far we operate independently. In the future, we would also try to provide snacks or additional food for children in Khandei class, namely for those aged 8-13 years,” he explained.

Meanwhile, the Head of Women Empowerment and Child Protection Office of Jayapura District, Maria Bano confirmed on the guide of the child-friendly village that already implemented in the Indigenous School of Jayapura District.

“Children from formal school continue their learning activities there, in the indigenous school, which encourage children playing and having fun with their friends. Because at their age, children need to observe their environment and people around them,” said Bano. (*)

Jayapura, Jubi – Assistant Rector III of the University of Science and Technology Jayapura (USTJ) Isak Rumbarar regrets the arrest of his students by Jayapura municipal police on 4 September 2018 in their campus.

He said 34 students were arrested at around 11:00 in the morning to the police station and interrogated there throughout the night. The police then released them on Wednesday morning (5/09/2018)

As the assistant rector for student affairs, I regret it. I was late to the campus. They already took the students when I have arrived,” he told Jubi in the campus on Wednesday (05/09/2018).

Furthermore, according to him, the police must consult with the campus authority before arresting the students because they hold a protest on the campus area only.

Meanwhile, the President of USTJ Student Malvin Yobe said the Police made a mistake by entering the campus without any notice to the campus authority.

The police made a mistake to enter the campus and arrested students. In this case, they violated the Law number 12 of 2012 concerning to higher education. They must give written notification to the campus authority to arrest. We are disappointed because it ’s wrong,” he said. (*)

Jayapura, Jubi – The selection process of IPDN students in Papua Province for intake 2018/2019 is considered discrimination against indigenous Papuans due to the domination of non-Papuans. It’s definitely against the Special Autonomy Law of Papua.

A humanitarian activist Natalius Pigai said this is discrimination. “Only four out of seventy cadets are Papuans. It means 90% of new IPDN students are non-natives. I am offended, and for this, I completely criticise Jokowi and the Minister of Home Affairs Tjahjo Kumolo,” Pigai told Jubi by phone on Saturday,(08/31/2018).

According to Pigai, who was the former member of the National Human Rights Commission, a distribution of power to accommodate the children of a nation as the agents of change is a strength of this country. It would grow their sense of belonging towards this country.

Separately, Marinus Yaung, a lecturer on International Relations of the University of Cenderawasih, maintained he doubts the competence of IPDN graduates compared to his students from the variety of department of studies including Government Science, Administration Science, State Administration, Anthropology, Social Welfare and International Relations.

According to him, the alumni of the University of Cenderawasih have been shown more qualified and ready to work in all districts in Papua Province rather than the IPDN alumni.

“Our alumni are better and highly competent of serving in the bureaucracy as echelon III or IV in the district government,” said Yaung. (*)
