Abstract: Basic health levels in Indonesia are a major concern particularly amongst the poor, rural communities of eastern Indonesia. The national health initiative, Healthy Indonesia 2010, promotes the paradigms of disease prevention and health promotion with health decision-making moved from the national to local (district) level. CDU's School of Environmental and Life Sciences is running a pilot project that aims to build capacity in the efficient collection and analysis of health data, and demonstrate its use for effective health service delivery at the village level for sites in three districts in Nusa Tenggara Timor, Ngada and Nagekeo in Flores and Timor Tenngah Selatan (TTS), West Timor. This seminar will include descriptions of some issues for health data collection and health service delivery at the village level, and the activities undertaken in this project to address these. The project is funded by AusAID's Public Sector Linkage Program (PSLP). More information is available at
