Indonesia-2015_Indonesia-1

Despite of successful democratic election in Indonesia, the political instability due to transnational investment and global economy climate affecting macro- economic indicators, as for first quarter of 2015 there has been decrease of GDP by -2% which affecting government ownership over social, development and human rights issues as consequences of national budget cut. Therefore, domestic funding allocation for better access to information and services on SRHR remains insufficient. Furthermore, with decentralization of government, ownership from local government to promote access to service and information on SRHR that resulted to uneven service quality.

Furthermore, there’s an urgent need to synchronize policies and laws to safeguard the rights of women and youth in accessing information and services on SRHR. For instance, the Marriage law contradicts with the Child protection law with the legal age of marriage for girls suggested at 16 years within the marriage law, and children defined as persons below 18 years of age under the Child Protection law.
