Suara.com – Interpreting World Immunization Week 2022 on April 16-22 2022, PT Bank JTrust Indonesia Tbk (J Trust Bank) in partnership with the Ronald McDonald House Charity Foundation (RMHC) held free immunizations for infants and children.
The World Immunization Week 2022 activity which was held at the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Indonesia was also attended by Executive Vice President of J Trust Bank, Ong Pey Fang accompanied by Corporate Secretary Division Head Ridyawan Amnar and RMHC Organizational Leader, Rini T Wardani.
Immunization is very important to provide immunity so as to protect children from the severity of the disease. Immunization is also an effort to eradicate or eradicate a disease from the population of an area. Quoting promkes.kemenkes.go.id, at least 70% of the population of an area or country must get immunizations.
“After a hiatus for 2 years (due to the COVID-19 pandemic), Ronald McDonald Care Mobile, the inaugural RMHC foundation, is back in the midst of society to provide immunization services to infants and children. We are very pleased that J Trust Bank is supporting this activity as a collaborator in the 2022 World Immunization Week activities and hope that this collaboration can continue to be carried out in order to achieve Indonesian children who are healthy, strong and ready to answer the challenges in their future,” said RMHC Organizational Leader, Rini T Wardani in her statement.

In line with what Rini said, the COVID-19 pandemic has greatly disrupted the implementation of immunization. Data from the Ministry of Health shows that complete basic immunization coverage has decreased significantly since the start of the pandemic, from 84.2% in 2020 to 79.6% in 2021.
Various factors contributed to the decline in routine immunization coverage, including supply chain disruptions, restrictions on activities, and reduced availability of health workers.
At least that’s what underlies J Trust Bank to support this RMHC activity.
“J Trust Bank is committed to contributing to improving the health and welfare of children. Immunization is a need for infants and children that must be met. To have a strong and smart future generation, we need to jointly maintain their health quality,” said Executive Vice President J Trust Bank, Ong Pey Fang.
In addition to providing the best services in the banking sector, J Trust Bank also strives to provide added value to stakeholders. Through this immunization collaboration activity, J Trust Bank hopes to be able to support the achievement of the 3rd goal of Sustainable Development Goals, namely Good Health and Welfare.
