As a part of its SDG Partnership, UNDP Seoul Policy Centre (USPC) together with UNDP Indonesia Country Office convened a knowledge-sharing workshop to improve Indonesia’s Hospital-based Integrated Service Center for gender-based violence (GBV) victims in Jakarta on 27 June 2022.  

Since 2017, UNDP Indonesia and USPC have partnered to exchange experiences and know-how in tackling violence against women and supporting the victims of GBV. In 2019, these efforts bore fruit by establishing ‘Pusat Pelaynan Terpadu (PPT; Integrative Service Centre) Bunga Tanjung’, a hospital-based One-Stop Service Centre for GBV victims in Jakarta, which was inspired by the Republic of Korea (RoK)’s Sunflower Center model. PPT Bunga Tanjung is a remarkable success case led by strong government ownership and fully financed by public funds with police investigation support. Following the COVID-19 outbreak, however, the quality of health service was critically affected, making it imperative to adjust the service mechanisms in order to ensure the accessibility and effectiveness of ‘PPT Bunga Tanjung’. 

The workshop aimed at sharing the knowledge and experience of the ‘Sunflower Centers’, the one-stop service centres of the RoK that provide holistic support to SGBV victims, to build an effective monitoring and evaluation (M&E) mechanism to improve the quality of integrative health services of Indonesia’s hospital-based integrated service center.

Speakers included Mr. Syamsul Tarigan, Senior Technical Advisor of UNDP Indonesia, Dr. Widyawati, Head of DKI Jakarta Provincial Health Office, Ms. Kompol Endang Sri Lestari, S.H., Head of PPA Polda Metro Jaya, Dr. Widyawati, Head of DKI Jakarta Provincial Health Office, and Ms. Ahjung Lee, Policy Specialist and Governance Portfolio Manager of USPC. 

S.H. Kompol Endang Sri Lestari, Head of PPA Polda Metro Jaya, emphasized the need for medicolegal services to address the challenges of the legal process for sexual violence according to RUU TPKS law (Sexual Violence Crime Bill in Indonesia). Ms. Hye Young Park, Senior Consultant of USPC and Former Associate Director of Seoul Sunflower Center, shared lessons learned from the Sunflower Center’s mechanism to provide integrative support for SGBV victims. Underscoring the Center’s collaborative work with the Korean Police, she presented the Center’s knowhow on preventing secondary victimization and, in particular, emphasized the need for strong leadership by government ministries to consolidate cooperation among stakeholder organizations.

Based on the presentations of medicolegal analysis and suggestions for performance indicators, evaluation of victim protection, investigations and evidence collecting, Dr. Zeba Margaretha Hanita of UNDP Indonesia facilitated the discussions on the adjustment of the Monev Framework in response to the anti-sexual violence law. The workshop closed with Dr. Fify, Kasie Kesga Health Office of DKI Jakarta sharing the action plan to enhance the quality of health services of Indonesia’s hospital-based One-Stop Service Centre for GBV victims.

As part of this effort, since 2017, USPC has been working with the Korean National Police Agency, Ministry of Gender Equality and Family, and Sunflower Centers to share their knowledge and experience in responding to SGBV with partner countries around the world.
