Indonesia Young Adult Reproductive Nealth Survey 2007
The 2007 Indonesia Young Adult Reproductive Health Survey (IYARHS) is the second national survey on Adolescent Reproductive Health (ARH) in Indonesia. The survey is a sub-sample of the 2007 Indonesia Demographic and Health Survey (IDHS) which was carried out through cooperation between the National Family Planning Coordinating Board and Central Board of Statistics (BPS) and Ministry of Health of the Republic of Indonesia. There are two differences between the 2007 IYARHS and the 2002-2003 IYARHS. First, the sampling design for the 2002-2003 IYARHS, whose respondents were single men and women age 15-24, provides estimates for various parameters for the national level, while that of the 2007 IYARHS allows estimates for the provincial level. The second difference is associated with location of the survey. While the previous IYARHS was carried out only in 15 out of 26 provinces in Indonesia, the 2007 IYARHS covered all 33 provinces in the country. The 2007 is expected to provide data and information on knowledge, attitudes, and practices of adolescents on human reproductive aspects including sexual activities, HIV and AIDS, as well as other sexually transmitted diseases. I believe that the findings of the survey will be of great importance for program managers and decision makers. There are a lot of data and information derived from the 2007 IYARHS. I hope the results of the survey as contained in the final report will widely be used and be analyzed further so that clearer pictures will be be revealed with regards to the situation and condition of knowledge attitudes, and practices with regard to Adolescent Reproductive Health in the country. In this good opportunity, let me express my sincere gratitude to all parties who have given their optimal efforts in finalizing the survey report. I thank the Central Board of Statistics (BPS), the Ministry of Health, and Macro International, Inc. which have done a good job in preparing, implementing, and finalizing the report of the survey. My thanks also goes to the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), United Nations Population Funds (UNFPA), Ford Foundation, and UNICEF which also contribute to making the survey possible as planned.
