Increasing the Sustainability of Company-Community Partnerships for Health Indonesia

Increasing the Sustainability of Company-Community Partnerships for Health in Indonesia (CCPHI) is a one-year project to build on the success of our previous project, Institutionalizing Company-Community Parrtnerships for Health in Indonesia. ACCESS Health Worldwide will help CCPHI become more sustainable as a national resource on partnerships involving companies to improve community health and sustainability in Indonesia. The objectives are to help CCPHI: 1) strengthen CCPHI knowledge and skills needed for program development; 2) increase the availability of partnership information produced by the project to national and international audiences; and 3) increase and strengthen membership of its Health and Business Roundtable in Indonesia.

Institutionalizing Company-Community Partnerships for Health in Indonesia

Institutionalizing Company-Community Partnerships for Health in Indonesia (CCPHI) facilitates partnerships among companies. This two-year project of ACCESS Health Worldwide was successfully completed in August 2012. During the project, CCPHI became an Indonesian nongovernmental organization eligible to receive grants from foreign sources, enabling it to continue its ongoing activities and build its program to eventually become sustainable. CCPHI is increasingly recognized as the premier resource in Indonesia on partnership building involving companies to improve community health and sustainability.
