Vaccination Is Just One of the Critical Steps Needed to Overcome the Pandemic


To turn the tide against the pandemic, Indonesia will vaccinate 181.5 million people, improve public health systems, tighten diagnostic and surveillance protocols to reduce transmission, and strengthen therapeutic and treatment facilities for those infected, said Health Minister Budi Gunadi Sadikin during the Asian Development Bank's Southeast Asia Development Symposium (SEADS) 2021.

SEADS 2021, Innovation through Collaboration: Planning for an Inclusive Post-COVID-19 Recovery, was held on 17–18 March.
