The Asian Development Bank (ADB) has approved a 400 million dollar financial assistance package for Indonesia that will make education and health services more readily available for the country’s poorest families….“The primary beneficiaries of ADB’s support will be women and children from poor households who currently lack sufficient access to quality education and health services,” said Alfredo Perdiguero, a senior economist in ADB’s Southeast Asia Department.

“Indonesia’s expansion of social services for the poor will help more children survive their earliest years of life, save more people from HIV/AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis, help more women remain healthy during pregnancy, help more children go to school, and reduce regional and socioeconomic differences in social service delivery.”
