A protester Simon lamented about the patient died at the hospital. “It is not us who complaining. Perhaps there are other patients who had similar experience of being rejected because of they are coming from poor family,” said Simon.

Protest coordinator Ortiz Salosa said they protested over the service by medical staffs. According to him, many patients of poor family are compounded to get medicines. “Though there is a government policy to facilitate poor people to get health services through state’s insurance programs such as BPJS Kesehatan, Program Indonesia Sehat and both Municipal and Regional Sorong Government also have disbursed Rp 5 billion allocated from the Regional Budget to provide medicines,” said Salosa.

He claimed the hospital asked patients to do disbursement first before the service.

A relative of victim, who declined his name being published, said he drove the victim to the hospital at 4:00 Papua time, but there was no staff. Until 10:21 Papua time, he found the victim was already dead. “Even they (medical staffs) were busy playing with their cellphone and leaving her to die in pain,” 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. (*)
