It was summed up that the Australia Indonesia Partnership for Health Systems Strengthening that started on November 2012 to June 2016 was a highly relevant and important initiative for the Government of Indonesia (GoI). It was strongly led by the Indonesian Government with the program valued for its flexibility and responsiveness to addressing health system and policy needs. The program also demonstrated a potential approach to how health systems strengthening can be conducted in the current five year policy cycle linking national, provincial and district level policy, planning and implementation.
