The "Siap Antar Jaga" model ("Ready to bring and to take care") is a Community Based Alert System approach, part of the national program of the Ministry of Health (MoH) for the development of the Health Sector in Indonesia.
This film describes the concept of community members owning their own resources and capacities for preventing and overcoming their own health problems, health emergencies and disasters based on the already existing Indonesian tradition of mutual support and in a spirit of togetherness. The overall goal is to reduce maternal death.
