Forty Years of Partnership to Improve Health and Save Lives: Johns Hopkins University and Indonesia

Publication Year: 2016

The Johns Hopkins University (JHU) and the country of Indonesia have a long and fruitful history of working together to improve public health for the Indonesian people. With the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health (JHSPH) commemorating its Centennial and Indonesia hosting the fourth International Conference on Family Planning in 2016, it seems a fitting time to look back and celebrate one of the university’s longest and most successful partnerships. Over the years, various groups within JHU, such as the Center for Human Nutrition, the Bill & Melinda Gates Institute for Population & Reproductive Health and the Johns Hopkins Center for Communication Programs (CCP), all within the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health (JHSPH), and Jhpiego, an affiliate of Johns Hopkins, have worked with the Indonesian government, private sector and countless NGOs to conduct programs and research that have improved the health and saved the lives of millions of Indonesians. Millions more around the world have benefited from this work.
