On July 8, Indonesia’s Ministry of Health said that it has offered incentives to 166,029 Indonesian medical workers.

The realized budget for incentives allocated to Indonesia’s medical workers has reached Rp 278 billion, according to the Health Ministry’s Secretary of Human Resources Development and Empowerment Trisa Wahjuni Putri.
