Trend of Non-Communicable Disease in the Era of Disruptive Technoloy 4.0 (Invitation Only)
Thursday, 28 November 2019. 13.00 – 15.00. Mangupura Room
The Program:
Based on data from the Indonesian Ministry of Health Information Centre, the estimated population of Indonesia in 2016 was approximately 258,704,986 people, consisted of 129,988,690 men and 128,716,296 women. This number of Indonesian population represents young population since the proportion of population aged 0-14 years is more than that aged >14 years. Meanwhile, the proportion of population aged 50 years and above is significantly reduced, which is thought to be due to high mortality rate in the middle-aged population. The mortality rate in Indonesia is dominated by non-communicable diseases (NCD). Alteration in environment, technology and lifestyle have changed the pattern of disease in Indonesia.

  • Late breaking news about non-communicable diseases (NCD).
  • Research and development for non-communicable diseases (NCD).
  • Expand the network in non-communicable diseases (NCD).

Expected Outcome:
All participants received the latest information related to developments and innovations in controlling non-communicable diseases

DAY 2 - Friday, 29 November 2019
Symposia Session 8
New Emerging Tobacco Products: Double Burden, Not a Solution
The Program:
Indonesia is a country that is currently still having difficulty in overcoming the problem of smoking. Not over with the increasing number of the smokers, the country now has been faced with the new problem of the new emerging tobacco products, which is electronic cigarettes or Electronic Nicotine Delivery System (ENDS). The number of ENDS users in the country has been increase from 0.3% in 2011 to 2.7% in 2018. Among youth age 10-18, this problem even more sophisticated where in 2016 only 1.2% users were reported, this number rapidly increase in 2018 to 10,9%.

This increasing number is likely due to misleading information that has been widely spread out by the industry where the promotion of the product is using public health terms such as reducing smoking habit, healthy life style, smoke-free world, no-tar, etc. All of this is aimed at getting the attention of the public and blurring their true purpose. This misleading information need to be countered and public health advocate need to be more aware with the problem and the tobacco industry play book. This symposium is aims to reveal the true information about ENDS and counter their misleading information to get more understanding of the problem that e-cigarettes is not a solution, it is DOUBLE BURDEN of tobacco control.

Symposia Session 9
Multi-Stakeholder Engagement in NCD Burden Reduction
Friday, 29 November 2019. 15.00 – 17.00. Amlapura Room
The Program:
NCDs are now a recognised global health and development priority, with several political commitments and targets previously made. These include the NCD targets in the UN Sustainable Development Goals, the WHO Global NCD Action Plan 2013-2020 and WHO 2025 global NCD targets and indicators, and the 2014 national time bound commitments. The transition from MDGs to SDGs presents an opportunity for the NCD response, as the new agenda is based upon an “integrated and indivisible” approach to the goals and targets, demanding all sectors to work together and is a fundamental requirement for a successful NCD response. Despite global commitments, the current trends indicate that the global NCD targets will largely go unmet – progress as a whole has been insufficient and uneven – and many low- and middle-income countries are struggling to move from commitment to action. The political and economic climate in which the UN HLM is taking place is challenging. The global humanitarian crisis, the decline of official development assistance for health, economic stagnation faced by many countries, the rise of nationalism, trade and investment policies and agreements, the power of multinational companies to undermine public health, and the diminishing space for civil society globally.

  • Raise awareness of the scale, impact and urgency of NCDs.
  • Encourage delegates to establish NCDs as a priority investment for health and development, building support for cost-effective interventions and sustainable funding models to support national NCD responses.
  • Strengthen and mobilise the NCD civil society movement, and the voices of youth and people living with NCDs.

Expected Outcome:
  • Delegates understand the urgency of NCD prevention and control in their country.
  • Delegates willing to mobilise and support the NCD alliance movement in their own country.

Symposia Session 10
Research and Development of Medicinal Plants and Traditional Medicine
The Program:
Indonesia has committed to invest in human resources to build a strong economy and thereby improve the quality of life for its people. However, this endeavor must begin with its children—for a prosperous and healthier future. The government has embarked on a mission to reduce stunting, which impacts 3 in 10 Indonesian children. Owing to collective efforts, nutrition is now a national priority. Political will, driven by effective advocacy and communication efforts, has been a game-changer in the shift. A similar thrust is required to prioritize immunization. Every year, almost 125,000 children do not live to see their fifth birthday in Indonesia. This can be prevented through a life-saving, proven innovation—vaccines. Today, one million children miss out on essential vaccines. While Indonesia has a routine immunization schedule, the coverage rates vary across the archipelago. Further, the introduction of new vaccines remains a challenge. For vaccines to reach every child, a strong health system must be built. Advancing dialogues can raise momentum to ensure that no child dies of preventable causes. Evidence from experts needs to be presented to shape the policy discourse and political will must be elevated to spur change.

  • Establish an evidence-based case for the prioritization of child health and immunization in Indonesia.
  • Identify and highlight the role of decision-makers and enablers in creating a conducive environment for every child to survive and thrive, using the successful case of nutrition.
  • Share opportunities and learnings for government, political, technical and other actors to strengthen health service delivery and access to immunization.

Expected Outcome:
  • Increase awareness on the opportunities and challenges around immunization.
  • Build consensus across the board on raising the policy discourse on interventions such as immunization.
  • Consolidate recommendations emerging from the discussion on prioritizing child healt.

Research for Health Systems Strengthening: A Technical Consultation on An Upcoming Book by NIHRD (Invitation Only)
Friday, 29 November 2019. 15.00 – 17.00. Kintamani Room
The Program:
The WHO Country Office for Indonesia, in close partnership with University of Indonesia, is supporting the National Institute of Health Research and Development in the development of a book entitled “Performance of Indonesia Health Development: problems, challenges and solutions”. The book will be a key milestone documenting and reporting the progress and achievement of the health system in health development in the last five years and inform future strategic and policy directions in health system strengthening. The analysis will be centered around system functions, determinants and performance guided by the WHO health system building blocks.

In preparation for the launch of the book, this Symposia Session brings together key stakeholders 1) to be informed of the synopsis of the draft book; and 2) to deliberate about one of the key chapters of this book which focuses on the role and contribution of research in strengthening the health system. The session participants who provide explicit and structured feedback will be acknowledged in the book.

  • To facilitate a dialogue among policy-makers, researchers and other stakeholders about the role, values and opportunities of health systems research in strengthening the functions and performance of the health system in Indonesia.
  • To deliberate about the existing health systems research evidence which has contributed to public health decision-making as well as critical policy questions that future health systems research should address.
  • To inform the further development of the book chapter on the health systems research and align and contextualize the key research agenda.

Expected Outcome:
  • Key suggestions and comments to complement and improve the book chapter on health systems research.
  • An informal network of researchers, policy-makers and stakeholders with vested interests in health systems research and evidence-informed policy-making.

Symposia Session 15
Tobacco Advertising Prohibition Policy as Key Success to Reduce Prevalence of Smokers
Saturday, 30 November 2019. 08.00 – 10.00. Denpasar Room
The Program:
According to AC Nielsen, as quoted in the pages of this media research institute, cigarette advertisements in Indonesian television media showed a volume decrease of 1.2 trillion rupiah in 2018 (1.6T) compared to 2017 (2.8T). On the other hand, cigarette advertisements in online media are increasingly intense and massive. This is due to the absence of legislation established by the government to ban cigarette advertising activities in online media. A study conducted by STIKOM LSPR, Jakarta in 2018 shows that cigarette advertisements in online media affect the attitudes of children and adolescents on smoking behavior. Cigarette advertisements appear on all types of online media, especially on all social media platforms that are popular with children and adolescents. As many as 3 out of 4 teenagers are aware of cigarette advertisements in online media, especially from the Youtube, Website and Instagram platforms.

Riset Kesehatan Dasar in 2018 shows that there has been an increase in the prevalence of child smokers and adolescents aged 10-18 years from 7.2% in 2013 to 9.1% in 2018. In addition, the results of the School-based Student Health Global Survey in 2015 showing 21.4% of boys and 1.5% of Indonesian girls aged 13 to 15 have become smokers (World Health Organization, 2010). This fact is certainly very concerning considering RPJMN 2019 target is to reduce the prevalence of child and adolescent smokers to 5.4%.

One of the causes of the high prevalence of adolescent and adult smokers in Indonesia is the absence of government regulations that prohibit children from smoking. While the tobacco industry is very active in advertising through various media, including online media targeting teenagers. The World Health Organization (WHO) (2013) calls on member countries to reduce or eliminate exposure to tobacco use through comprehensive regulations on tobacco advertising, promotion and sponsorship through the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC). Meanwhile, based on Broadcasting Law No. 32 of 2002, the Indonesian government only limits the time of cigarette advertisement display on television and has not totally banned tobacco advertisements and sponsorships in various media. Tobacco product advertising and promotion targets teenagers. In addition, all tobacco industry marketing activities are a systematic series aimed at recruiting children and adolescents to become new smokers (Prabandari & Dewi, 2016; National Commission on Child Protection, 2007).

  • Describes the implementation of the TAPS Ban program in Indonesia
  • Describe the successes of other regions and countries related to the implementation of TAPS Ban
  • Conduct a discussion about the prohibition of cigarette advertising on online media
  • Identify the role of each sector, both government and civil society organizations in supporting the total ban on cigarette advertising, promotion and sponsorship

Expected Outcome:
  • Delegates understand program of government to reduce prevalence of smokers and know the effect of TAPS Ban in online media
  • Delegates willing to mobilise and support Tobacco Control Support Center (TCSC-IAKMI) and other Tobacco Control Networking
  • Delegates know about one of success stories TAPS Ban in Indonesia and Other Country
