The Ministry of Health of the Republic of Indonesia is collaborating with Tanoto Foundation to develop digital learning modules aimed at increasing the capacity of 1.5 million Integrated Health Post cadres (Posyandu) in mastering 25 basic competencies.

These competencies include the ability to explain the use of Maternal and Child Health (Buku KIA) handbooks for parents of children under five, provide education on breastfeeding and age-appropriate complementary feeding, and improve interpersonal communication skills to influence the positive behaviours to achieve better health.

Tanoto Foundation also supports the acceleration of digital health transformation, especially in improving the Master Data Index to enable integration across systems and applications.

Integration with the Aplikasi Sehat IndonesiaKu (ASIK) system is carried out to record health service results and monitor patients and programme participation in all primary care health units (such as community health centres, village health centres and Posyandu) with the SATUSEHAT national health management platform. This integration ensures that health services are increasingly targeted, especially in preventing stunting and improving maternal and child health.

Meanwhile, accelerating digital health transformation through the SATUSEHAT platform is important to ensure that the national health data management system becomes more comprehensive and sustainable.

Tanoto Foundation has allocated IDR 16 billion for the development of digital learning modules for Posyandu cadres and the development of the SATUSEHAT system. In addition, Tanoto Foundation, together with APRIL Group, also support the Ministry of Health's initiative by providing necessary medical equipment and training for health workers at 29 community health centres in Riau province.
