WATCH Project, Jayawijaya (1991-2000)

The Jayawijaya WATCH (Women and Their Children’s Health) Project was implemented over a 9 year period and funded by the Government of Australia in conjunction with the Government of Indonesia. The project commenced in mid 1991 and directly benefited over 27,000 people through 3 phases of activity.
The essence of the project was a concern for primary health care, especially for women and children. The project was seeking not only to assist in the clinical problems but also the root causes of primary health care such as poverty, gender imbalance and lack of community organisation.
The project was based in Wamena as the centre of the Jayawijaya district in the highlands of Irian Jaya (Papua), Indonesia.
This CD Rom is an attempt to collate many of the documents from the project so as to present the story of the project. By AusAID standards, the project is not large but has been long and experimental. It has also been influential in challenging the thinking of health officials in Jakarta. To those in the health sector in Jakarta this project is somewhat of a model for an alternative approach to primary health care, particularly in integrating a range of activities and recognising the individual differences of regions in the country.
This CD Rom contains a collection of documents from the project for the interest of development workers and people interested in Irian Jaya. It contains the design documents, consultant reports, surveys and pictures from the project. Not all documents are located here and not all documents were available in electronic form in time to be included. Follow up on material presented should be addressed to one or all of the following :
