2006-2008 Country Strategy for API in Indonesia:
In December 2005, Indonesia adopted a National Strategic Plan for Avian Influenza and Pandemic Preparedness. The National Strategic Plan covered the aspect of animal healthcare as well as human healthcare. It was intended as a national guide for all stakeholders for handling avian influenza in Indonesia. Furthermore, on a regional and global level, the strategic plan was also part of the regional and global strategy.
Formulation of the National Strategic Plan was done in three stages. The first stage was joint formulation by the Department of Health, the Department of Agriculture and coordinated by the State Ministry for National Development Planning/Bappenas. The second stage was perfecting the plan by involving related authorities, associations, professional bodies and the private sector as well as verification to fulfill international standards from international bodies competent in the field of animal and human health. In the third stage, all related authorities formulated more concrete operational plans complete with technical guidelines which refer to this National Strategic Plan.
