Description The project will utilize the rapid response component (RRC) under the Asia Pacific Vaccine Access Facility (APVAX), and will provide Bio Farma with financing for vaccine procurement and logistics based on an agreed list of eligible expenditures to vaccinate priority populations against the coronavirus disease (COVID-19). The project is aligned with the following operational priorities of Strategy 2030: (i) addressing remaining poverty and reducing inequalities, (ii) accelerating progress in gender equality, and (iii) fostering regional cooperation and integration. The project is consistent with the Asian Development Bank country partnership strategy for Indonesia, 2020-2024, as it will improve the well-being of Indonesians by strengthening the health system and preventing the spread of COVID-19.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy COVID-19 continues to spread widely in Indonesia, with more than 1.3 million people infected and about 35,000 fatalities as of early March 2021. In February 2021, the daily positivity rate (the percentage of individuals who tested positive out of the total number of individuals tested) stood at over 20% which is significantly higher than the 5% benchmark set by the World Health Organization. Surveillance systems and volunteers have been deployed to carry out contact tracing, but there remains a wide gap between the number suspected and tested.
Impact

Transmission of COVID-19 reduced, public health improved, and economic productivity restored

SARS-CoV-2's spread, morbidity, and mortality reduced, and confidence of citizens restored
