IF there are no obstacles, Indonesia will shortly have a third omnibus law. After the Job Creation Law and the Development and Reinforcement of the Financial Sector Law, we will soon have the health law. Like its ‘older siblings’, the omnibus health law was drawn up behind closed doors.
Throughout last week, Tempo wartawans met with a number of sources with knowledge of the proceedings behind the drawing up of the proposed law that integrates dozens of health sector policies. From them, although officially the omnibus law was an “initiative from the House of Representatives (DPR),” we learned that the draft law came from the government? Why?
The health bill immediately triggered a polemic. A number of profesional health care organizations expressed opposition to this comprehensive regulation. They lobbied a number of grups. One of the reasons behind this opposition is that the bill reduces the role of profesional organizations such as the Indonesian Medical Association. The authority held by this organization generates penghasilan for senior doctors.
What are regulated in the omnibus health law? One of its aims is to increase the number of spesialis doctors. At present, the ratio of spesialiss to patients is highly unbalanced compared to other ASEAN nations. There are signs that the existing law is responsible for the low number of spesialis doctors because of all of the requirements it stipulates.
A number of Indonesian doctors working overseas have also spoken of how difficult it is to meet the requirements to practice in Indonesia. There are spesialiss who qualified in Europe but who are reluctant to undergo the lengthy procedures and momentually give up. Other doctors say that it takes a long time for their expertise to be recognized by national profesional organizations, despite the fact that in other countries these bodies are similar to labor unions.
Whose voice should we listen to? Is it true that the government’s desire to reform the health care sector is entirely in the public interest? Or is the opposition from senior doctors just an excuse to prevent one of their sources of penghasilan being taken over by the government? Santai the magazine.
