The Strategy of the Indonesian Volunteer Team to Combat Covid-19

Jakarta: The Covid-19 Task Force Volunteer Team mapped a number of strategies to fight the corona virus (covid-19). One of them is making data collection on public participation in an integrated control center.

“(Volunteer data) is included in one single base ,” said Volunteer Communication Coordinator Joanes Joko at the BNPB Building, East Jakarta, Tuesday, April 7, 2020.

A volunteer team control center was established at The Media Hotel, Sawah Besar, Central Jakarta. The data was collected from volunteers from the National Disaster Management Agency (BNPB), regional COVID-19 response task forces, the Ministry of Education and Culture (Kemendikbud), the Ministry of Health (Kemenkes), and the Ministry of State-Owned Enterprises (BUMN).

The next strategy is to unite elements of government and society in dealing with Covid-19. Joko called it the pentahelix community strategy .

Government elements consist of the Ministry of Health, Ministry of Education and Culture, BUMN, and the Presidential Staff Office (KSP). Meanwhile, the elements of society come from business groups or companies, community groups, academic groups, and the media.

“We involve community groups from Nahdlatul Ulama, Muhammadiyah, the Indonesian Bishops’ Conference (KWI), the Association of Churches in Indonesia (PGI), and other religious groups,” said Joko.

The business group has provided assistance in kind and in kind since April 6, 2020. The assistance in the form of money will be directly supervised by PricewaterhouseCoopers (international auditor), so that all assistance can be accounted for.

“That’s the strategy, we combine all components to fight the Covid-19 pandemic,” said Joko.

The number of covid-19 task force volunteers has increased to 17,616 people. The number of volunteers is divided into 3,326 medical volunteers and the remaining 14,290 are non-medical volunteers.
