JAKARTA, KOMPAS.com – Before rolling out Indonesia’s Covid-19 vaccination program, there needs to be enhanced competency and a better understanding of its implementation.
Major General Tugas Ratmono, Head of the Indonesian Army’s Health Center, stressed on these needs at the opening of the Training of Trainer (TOT) Covid-19 Vaccination Implementation event which seeks to train individuals who will be part of the Indonesian government’s ambitious plan.
“This is why it is important that there be information and competency training on how the government will execute the program. If we seek to make the initiative a success, then it is important for us all to be on the same page.”
Tugas further shared his hope that TOT participants will extend the training facility to the Indonesian Army.
“Through these events, we certainly hope that today’s TOT participants will share their knowledge on how to implement Indonesia’s Covid-19 vaccination program among the army’s health specialists and our partners.”
As a sign of collaboration between civil society and the Indonesian army, Tuesday’s event was also attended by members of the army’s health center in addition to the health centers of the country’s air force and navy.
“This collaboration is crucial as it improves the synchronization of how we mitigate the pandemic in theory and on the field."
