UNFPA INDONESIA’S SEXUAL AND REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH AND GENDER-BASED VIOLENCE RESPONSE TO THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC 2020-2021

Publication

In the early months of 2020, the world was starting to learn about the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), a newly discovered and highly contagious strain of the coronavirus. Its seemingly abrupt emergence as well as its staggering ability to spread, quickly upended the world’s collective sense of normalcy and pushed nations to implement significant changes to even the most mundane activities. In Indonesia, the first official case of COVID-19 was recorded on March 2, 2020. At present (July 2021), Indonesia is experiencing its most significant spike in confirmed cases to date, placing it as the “new epicenter of the pandemic.” In total, WHO has reported over 3 million COVID-19 cases and 80 thousand deaths in the country (per July 23, 2021).

 

In response to the vast reach and growing threat of COVID-19, UNFPA formulated a global response plan during the earlier months of the pandemic to address the disproportionate toll of COVID-19 on marginalized groups, particularly women and girls. At the country level, UNFPA Indonesia developed a Sexual and Reproductive Health (SRH) and Gender-based Violence (GBV) response in support of the Government of Indonesia (GoI) and its efforts to address the various impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. UNFPA Indonesia’s SRH and GBV Response Plan was developed in line with the UNFPA Global Response Plan, and in support of the UN Indonesia Multi-Sector and Socio-Economic Response Plans and their priority areas. 

 

UNFPA Indonesia’s SRH and GBV Response Plan received additional funding from the Australian Government Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT Australia), Global Affairs Canada (GAC), and the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and Empowerment (UN Women), which enabled the response to widen its reach and deepen its impact in COVID-19 affected areas. This response plan was implemented in partnership with government and professional agencies, civil society organizations, and academic institutions (listed in the table below). Furthermore, program implementation in the field was supported by local government agencies and organizations. 

 

The achievements described in this report focus on the SRH and GBV initiatives that were conducted between June 2020 and June 2021. With full consideration of the on-going COVID-19 pandemic and the various limitations it presents, all activities under this response were formulated and adjusted to ensure the safe continuity of SRH services and the effective management/prevention of GBV in Indonesia. In this regard, UNFPA Indonesia, in collaboration with its implementing partners, has made significant strides towards these goals through the following activities: 

  • Distribution of personal protective equipment PPE, maternity kits, and dignity kits (to protect service providers and their patients/clients).
  • Continuation of service provider training through online platforms (to improve service delivery).
  • Dissemination of information through online platforms (to raise public knowledge and awareness).
  • Community engagement in humanitarian settings (offline engagement following COVID-19 protocols).
  • Documentation for future reference and sustainability. 

 

Reflections from UNFPA’s implementing partners have been compiled, summarized, and categorized under the following thematic categories: 1) distribution of essential equipment in disaster and non-disaster areas; 2) making the shift from offline to online platforms; 3) ensuring clear lines of communication and strong coordination; and 4) encouraging innovation in service delivery. Similarly, the recommendations in this report correspond specifically to the implementation of SRH and GBV activities under the current COVID-19 pandemic. In doing so, these recommendations illustrate clear and practical considerations that can be used to improve the development of future programs in a pandemic situation.

Pedoman Umum Pelaksanaan Program Kerja Sama Pemerintah RI-UNFPA Siklus 10 (2021-2025)

Technical Reports and Document

Program Kerja Sama Pemerintah Republik Indonesia (Rl}-United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) Siklus Ke-10 (2021-2025} telah resmi sejak penandatanganan Country Programme Action Plan (CPAP} Periode 2021-2025 oleh Menteri Perencanaan Pembangunan Nasional/ Kepala Badan Perencanaan Pembangunan Nasional dan Kepala Perwakilan UNFPA di Indonesia pada tanggal 14Januari 2021. Program kerja sama tersebut selaras dan akan mendukung upaya Pemerintah RI dalam pencapaian target Rencana Pembangunan Jangka Menengah Nasional (RPJMN} Periode 2020-2024- sebagaimana juga terkait dengan komitmen dalam International Conference on Population Development (ICPD} 1994 dan Tujuan Pembangunan Berkelanjutan (Sustainable Development Goals) 2030.

Dengan mempertimbangkan aspek tata kelola yang baik (good governance), Pemerintah RI dan UNFPA perlu menyusun dan menyempurnakan Pedoman Umum (Pedum) yang akan menjadi acuan teknis dan terperinci mengenai pengelolaan program kerja sama. Selain itu, Pedum ini akan memberikan haluan yang jelas bagi berbagai unsur pemangku kepentingan yang terlibat, mulai dari instansi pemerintah, akademisi, swasta, organisasi kemasyarakatan, dan pemangku kepentingan lainnya. Pedum ini tidak hanya berlaku bagi Pemerintah Indonesia, tetapi juga bagi seluruh pemangku kepentingan yang ingin memahami konteks operasional kerja sama.

Pedum ini telah disusun dengan mengacu pada berbagai peraturan perundang-undangan yang terkait akuntabilitas dan operasional pelaksanaan kerja sama, peraturan Perserikatan Bangsa­Bangsa (PBB), serta kebijakan dan prosedur yang berlaku di Pemerintah RI-UNFPA. Ped um ini sebagian besar akan meliputi aspek administrasi dan keterkaitan dengan aspek substansi dalam dokumen kerja sama yang ditetapkan, mulai dari perencanaan, pelaksanaan, pengendalian, pelaporan, hingga penyelesaian program kerja sama.

Kami menyadari bahwa tata kelola yang baik merupakan suatu proses berkesinambungan untuk membenahi dan menyempurnakan tata kelola kerja sama, termasuk upaya kami melalui Pedum ini. Kami berharap Pedum ini dapat mendukung kelancaran pelaksanaan program kerja sama, sehingga seluruh pemangku kepentingan mampu memaksimalkan target pembangunan yang hendak dicapai.
