The project aims to improve demand for maternal health services, strengthen services at the local level, and improve family planning services.
The project is approved on the ten-year anniversary of the Safe Motherhood Conference in Nairobi, Kenya, and then-World Bank Group President Barber Conable's Call for Action that resulted in Bank Group funding for many population and maternal health projects. The Safe Motherhood Project for Indonesia -- subtitled "A Partnership and Family Approach" -- aims to address concerns about limited availability and quality of maternal health providers in the country. The project's development objectives include: improving demand for and utilization of quality maternal health services; strengthening the sustainability of maternal health services at the village level; and improving the quality of family planning services. The project, which is expected to be the first of many, will focus on two provinces: East and Central Java.
