National Immunization Program (NIP)
The Indonesian NIP is a sub-directorate of the Immunization and Quarantine Directorate, Division of Communicable Disease Control and Environmental Health, Ministry of Health (MOH).

Government Spending on Immunization
Over the period 2006-2013, Indonesia’s Gross National Income increased from US$1,390 to US$3,580 per capita, a 158 percent increase. According to the WHO/UNICEF Joint Reporting Form (JRF), the Indonesian government spent $8 on routine immunization per surviving infant in 2006. By 2013, this figure had fallen to $4, reflec percent to 60 percent from 2006-2013. Caveats: Reporting for JRF Indicator 6500 is incomplete and there are inconsistencies across the JRF financial indicators. The data suggest that Indonesia has not progressed towards country ownership of its immunization program.

Legislation for Sustainability
The Indonesian Health Law was passed in 2009. In November 2014, the MOH and Ministry of Planning (MOP) jointly initiated a review of all immunization-related legislation. It is intended to identify the appropriate legal document in which a provision establishing the Indonesian Technical Advisory Group on Immunization (ITAGI) may be inserted.

Tracking Expenditure Flows
The Indonesian EPI team completed the SIF Budget Process in May 2014 and again in March 2015.
