 National Workshop on Health Care Needs of Older Persons

Organized by RI Ministry of Health
in collaboration with Yayasan Emong Lansia,
funded by UN ESCAP

Jakarta, 22 - 24 August 2005.





The UN ESCAP Commission for Social Development, at its forty-first session in 2003, endorsed a bottom-up approach to review and appraisal of the implementation of the Madrid International Plan of Action on Ageing (MIPAA) . By extension, this endorsement applies to regional strategies for implementing MIPAA, such as the Shanghai Implementation Strategy (SIS). The bottom-up approach is defined as an open-ended, participatory process that seeks to incorporate and link local and national activities to UN regional intergovernmental bodies and up to the global level of the review and appraisal of MIPAA. After endorsement by the Commission for Social Development of the bottom-up participatory approach, its national (local) modalities were elaborated by an expert group meeting in Malta in 2003.

During its forty-second session in 2004, the Commission for Social Development, decided that review and appraisal of MIPAA should be conducted every five years, with each review and appraisal cycle to focus on the priority directions identified in MIPAA; the specific theme emanating from MIPAA for the first review and appraisal cycle will be identified by the Secretary-General. Member states were encouraged to include both ageing-specific policies and ageing-mainstreaming efforts in their review and appraisal of MIPAA and in their national strategies. In addition, the regional commissions, such as UNESCAP, were requested "to promote and facilitate the implementation, review and appraisal of and dissemination of information about MIPAA at the regional level, inter alia, by assisting national institutions, at their request, in implementation and monitoring of their actions on ageing".

Meanwhile, the regional modalities of the review and appraisal exercise have been proposed but not concluded. The content, format and logistics of the regional review and appraisal, requirements of regional technical cooperation, and the way of linking the regional and global reviews require further debate and clarification. The participants at the workshop are invited to work with the UNESCAP in addressing these issues.

MIPAA called for an "Attitudinal change towards Older Persons and Development". However, most countries in the world to a certain degree have to overcome difficulties in resources, knowledge, expertise and personnel when addressing issues related to supporting older persons both in the family as well as in the community.

In anticipation of the next high-level meeting on the regional review of the implementation of the SIS process, to be held in Macao in late 2006, and the five-year global review of MIPAA, tentatively to take place at the United Nations Headquarters in early 2007, Indonesia funded by UNESCAP will hold a national workshop on Health Care Needs for Older Persons that to strengthen the national capacity in implementing the recommendations of the SIS strategy in this area and monitoring progress achieved in improving the well-being of individuals, family and community support of older persons, and future steps to be taken.


The overall objective of the workshop is to contribute to the development of a national modality for review and appraisal of MIPAA with the use of the SIS process and, offer a set of indicators for measuring the impact of national ageing policies and programmes.

Specific objectives of the workshop are to:

1. Review the national experience and existing strategies related to policy and programmes for older persons in Indonesia.
2. Focus on health and long-term care in the light of the 2003 Indonesia National Plan of Action, the 2004 Government regulation No. 43 on older person protection, 2004 Presidential decree No. 52 on the National Commission for Older Persons, and 2005 Presidential decree No. 93/M on the membership of the National Commission for Older Persons.
3. Examine the application of the proposed modalities, format and matrix of indicators to the review and appraisal of MIPAA's implementation at the national level.
4. Suggest recommendations on how to collect, analyze and consolidate ("distill") information at the national level through the bottom-up participatory approach recommended by the SIS process.
5. Identify arrangements for cooperation between line-ministries and other national stakeholders in the review and appraisal process.
6. Identify good practices of technical cooperation activities aimed at assisting Member States in undertaking the bottom-up review and appraisal of MIPAA.
