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. (*)
