Access to health care

and basic medical care

Malnutrition issues
Health and Medical care access for all
Fair Future and Kawan Baik offer solutions for access to local medical care, in order to improve the health of people and populations living in rural areas. Where Fair Future is engaged, families continue to face inherent challenges, which make it difficult, if not impossible, to be in good health. Poverty, lack of information, and unique geography make it difficult for people living in remote areas to access health centers. Which leads to extraordinary inequalities. In Indonesia, 9.5 million children under five suffer from malnutrition. 12% of children under five suffer from wasting. 57% in rural areas are anemic.

Fair Future provides access to medical care, for all, families, children, vulnerable people, the disabled, victims of epidemics or natural disasters and conflicts

As a wealthy nation, we have both the capacity and the responsibility to support communities around the world so that they too can benefit from the gains of development.

Since 2010, Fair Future has been very active in establishing programs for access to medical care, for people who cannot access it, by any means possible. Since 2010, we have offered health care, medical care to nearly 250,000 people in Indonesia with our own medical teams, our own health centers, those we have built with our hands.

In 2019, we created Kawan Baik Indonesia, which is the official representation of the Swiss Foundation on Indonesian territory. This new organization allows us to develop and focus our activities in the poorest regions of Indonesia and even Southeast Asia.

Nusa Tenggara Timur, Sumba, and these ultra peripheral and very rural lands. Where nearly 450,000 people live without water or electricity, it is now our main place of work. These medical activities are organized from Rumah Kambera, our social & medical Base Camp in East Indonesia.

The issue of access to medical care in rural and ultra-peripheral regions

The rural communities of this ultra-peripheral region do not have access to medical care, even the most basic. Indeed, the distance separating the villages from the nearest health center is very large. The roads are difficult, they are mainly dirt or pebble roads on which only an all-terrain vehicle can access.

In addition, these health/medical centers are only open very occasionally; like one day for children and one day for adults, and this only per week (when they open). These centers are not equipped with medical equipment, no drugs, and medical personnel are often absent. These same health centers, for the most part, do not have access to water either.

Health care is also expensive and people in these rural communities cannot afford anything. As a result, sick people do not go to a doctor and often the consequences are disastrous in terms of infant mortality.

Indonesia’s health system is failing to provide even the most basic care to vast swathes of the population. Many who can not afford doctor’s fees often receive no treatment at all, while the wealthy fly abroad for a check-up. The system is plagued by under-funding, decentralisation, lack of qualified staff, rising medical costs, and outdated medical equipment.

Since the Foundation keeps medical and social statistics, we see that the numbers are increasing every year.

From a few thousand to tens of thousands of patients now! And linked to the health and economic crisis due to COVID-19, this continues to increase and we work hard for this. See this page here.

We are working on the development of sustainable actions, aimed at the concept of self-sufficiency.

We welcome and generally take care of comforting hundreds of patients at each medical event. We bring comfort, empathy, and share moments to try to understand the issues of these people who often have nothing at all. Everyone we meet every day suffers from diseases and problems mainly related to fatigue, malnutrition, nutritional deficiencies, infections, skin diseases, untreated diabetes, infected wounds, many young children suffer respiratory infections, asthma, chronic bronchitis, vitamin deficiency. The list is very long, but every day we face new health problems.

The main goal, the vision of the foundation is to treat people, to offer free medical care. As a whole, without any difference. Access to medical care in this huge country of 270 million people (4th world population) is not a right, but a privilege.

Access to health care and medical care should not be just a matter of chance, but a right to which everyone should be equal.

Thank you very much for your concrete help and your love, to offer a bright future to many people and their families, communities also!

Do you know that the foundation has been treating over 5’000 patients per year since 2011?

  • 9.5 million children under five are malnourished and don’t have any access to Health Care;
  • More than 3 million (or 12%) of children under five years of age in Indonesia suffer from wasting;
  • Almost two out of every three children under two years of age, (or 57%), in rural areas are anaemic;
  • Only 42% of children aged less than six months are exclusively breastfed, and only 36% of children consume appropriate complementary food.
  • 90% of people don’t have health insurance. Everywhere in Indonesia, the majority of people have no access to medical care.

    As always since 2010, Fair Future is doing his best to give healthcare to all needed. It’s sometimes complicated, we have to go where no one goes. Bit we still doing and we highly encourage you to support all the good friends involved on the field, there in East Indonesia. Thank you so much.
