During the event, all delegates visited Kampong KB in Malangrejo, Ngemplak District, Yogyakarta to see the implementation of family planning program in Indonesia. Kampong KB is a program initiated by BKKBN to develop underprivileged areas in Indonesia, ensuring them to get convenient access to health services, education, and life skills.

Initiated in 2016, Kampong KB aims to educate women with good parenting knowledge, foster their creative skills, and provide them with creative home crafting which leads to entrepreneurship and family welfare. The delegates visited the Youth Information and Counseling Center (PIK-R), which allows members to attend knowledge sharing sessions about postponement of marriage, life skills, and gender equity.

In 15 years, family planning programs will bring about a significant increase in productive population in Indonesia. “The current dependency ratio is <50 and will decrease continuously to reach the lowest point at 47 between 2028-2031. This will be the golden opportunity to improve the quality of life for the Indonesian population,” said H. Nofrijal, Principal Secretary of BKKBN.

In Message for World AIDS Day, Secretary-General Calls for Renewed Commitment to Make Epidemic ‘a Thing of the Past’

Following is UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres’ message for World AIDS Day, to be observed today:

The world is well on its way to meeting the target of ending the AIDS epidemic by 2030. Nearly 21 million people living with HIV now have access to treatment � a number that should grow to more than 30 million by 2020. AIDS related deaths and new HIV infections are declining. There is great hope that the world can deliver on its promise. But much more needs to be done.

Sadly, some parts of the response to HIV are lagging behind. In some regions of the world, hard-won successes are being reversed, with rising numbers of new HIV infections and AIDS related deaths.

Women and girls continue to be disproportionally affected by HIV, particularly in Africa. Men are less likely to know that they are living with the virus, less likely to seek treatment for it, and more likely to transmit HIV as a result. Too many people are unable to access the services they need to treat their illness or to stay healthy.

On this World AIDS Day, I call for a renewed commitment to finish what we have started and to make the AIDS epidemic a thing of the past.

Men urged to lead fight against gender based violence

Public Service and Administration Minister Faith Muthambi has encouraged men to take the lead in the fight against gender based violence.

Men have the power to put an end to abuse, assault, rape and domestic violence against women and children, Minister Muthambi said.

She was speaking during the Community Development Workers Consultative Engagement and the African Peer Review Mechanism Second Generation Review Process in Worcester on Friday.

The consultative engagement takes place as the country observes the campaign of 16 Days of Activism for No Violence against Women and Children. The annual campaign is run from 25 November to 10 December.

Over this period, government will convene a series of dialogues on violence against women and children to focus on the challenge, discuss the causes and to find appropriate solutions.

Through the dialogue sessions, government will interact with community members who experience violence and abuse.

We call on responsible father figures to instil the values of human dignity, equality and respect in young men and boys. Our young boys must be mentored and guided in their journey to adulthood so they value and respect women and children, Minister Muthambi said.

She encouraged communities to report all cases of rape, sexual assault or any form of violence to the police.

Our criminal justice system and our courts deal harshly with those who commit violence and abuse. The police and courts are empowered to arrest, prosecute and convict perpetrators of violence, assault and rape, Minister Muthambi said.

CDW programme

She said the National School of Government is working on a number of capacity development initiatives for both the Community Works Programme (CWP) and the Community Development Workers (CDW).

The NSG is planning to conduct the first pilot session of the programme in February 2018.

The target audience for the first group will be CDWs, representatives from the Non Profit Organisations that are the implementing agents, site managers and supervisors from the CWP, Department of Co-operative Governance and Traditional Affairs officials and Department of Public Service and Administration officials.

We remain committed to helping you in improving your skills, and in shaping your careers as public servants, Minister Muthambi said.

The CDW programme was primarily created to bridge the service delivery gap between the government and the people.

It is a community-based programme established by government to facilitate a solid community-government interface, which would result in increased access to government services by communities through the ward based CDWs.
