Indonesia AIPEID II Strategic Review and Options Development Paper and management response
Summary of publication
The primary purpose of the paper was to make recommendations on options for Australia's future bilateral programmatic support in the area of health security in Indonesia beyond June 2018. As a secondary purpose, the review also assessed achievement of program outcomes, implementation arrangements and management of the current AIP-EID Phase2 program, and makes recommendations on critical issues to be addressed during the final year of implementation. The review was conducted by a team of experts and finalised in June 2017.
The review team found that it is in Australia's interests to continue to support health security in Indonesia. The team recommended DFAT to continue with further assistance to the Government of Indonesia in the area of detection and response to infectious disease risks, maintaining the current focus on EIDs and zoonosis but retaining flexibility to respond to risks as they emerge, and including an animal and human health component, but with more focus on engagement at a strategic level.
