SNV is an international not-for-profit development organisation, working in 38 countries in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. SNV specializes in supporting the resourcefulness of development actors by developing local capacities, improving performance and services, strengthening governance systems, helping to create access for excluded groups and by making markets work for the poor. SNV has been working in Indonesia since 2013 in the WASH, energy and agriculture sectors. This assignment is carried out within the WASH SDGs program of SNV.


Access to Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) beyond the community and household level, especially in schools and Health Care Facilities (HCF), is crucial for maintaining the health and education of children. Addressing WASH issue in HCF is a critical element to achieve Universal Health Coverage (UHC) with quality, infection prevention and control (IPC), patient safety, and child and maternal health, specifically during child delivery. In both schools and HCF, WASH issues also related to patient, students, teachers’ dignity and respect, staff morale, performance and safety, and climate change resilience.

A recent existing data analysis jointly conducted by the Government of Indonesia and UNICEF found several challenges. Access to basic water (W) services is 79.6%; almost like basic sanitation (S) services that has reached 73.50%. However, development acceleration needs to be planned and implemented in some categories that are still far from the target achievement, which are health care waste management (WM) services at 46.14% and cleaning management (C) services at 51.19%.

For hygiene (H) services, a huge effort and strong commitment is needed to complete the data of handwash facility in toilet of Puskesmas so that the basic services for hygiene can be potentially identified.

Based on current challenges on WASH in Institutions, UNICEF, WHO and SNV have committed to addressing WASH in Health Care Facility issues through a range of strategies including:

·        Supporting evidence-generation so good science can inform sound policy and leverage Government commitment and resources for action,

·        Advocacy & engagement to strengthen national policy to ensure follow-up to local level,

·        Technical advice to improve program content and quality, strengthen monitoring systems and ensure limited resources get where they are needed most.


To this end, a further research on WASH in Primary Health Care Facility was conducted to ensure that WASH in Institutions is mainstreamed by the Government of Indonesia as part of its effort to achieve Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) target in 2030. UNICEF, WHO and SNV seeks to recruit a consultant who will be involved in the last part of this research, and who will use data collected to create a costing tool that will enable the government to calculate the financial effort needed to upgrade access to WASH facilities in Puskesmas in Indonesia.
