STOP Drugs Campaign

Indonesia is the most populous country in South East Asia and international drug cartels may view it as a large target market for their contraband. According to data from the Indonesian National Narcotics Agency (Badan Narkotika Nasional (BNN)) there was a significant amount of drugs seized in 2015 including 1.9 tons of marijuana, 672,782 ecstasy tablets and 2.6 tons of methamphetamine. Despite these hauls of drugs its estimated that only 20% of drugs being imported are seized by police leaving a significant quantity on the streets.

There is an enormous social cost of illicit drugs including vast health problems, violent crime and the loss of productive members of society for a generation of drug users. Other than the enormous social costs of illicit drugs there is also a disasterous economic impact which was estimated at Rp63.1 trillion in 2014 alone.

The members of our Company, seeing the scourge of drugs and the negative social and economic ramifications that result, were encouraged to partner with BNN to educate the community about the negative implications of illicit drugs. We do this by regularly airing advertisiments on our tv channels that inform the public about the dangers of drugs and addiction, access to rehabilitation, how they can prevent their family and community being affected and how they can report drug related crimes. On 27 September 2016,  the Company as part of the First Media Group has formed a partnership with BNN titled "Drugs Abuse Prevention Campaign - STOP Drugs".

The Company provides the availability of the governments tv station ‘Balai Kota Channel’. This allows the government to educate and inform the public about government services in a format that is accurate and free from bias.

Broadcasts from the Balai Kota Channel include policy announcements, promotion of regional development and tourism. The Balai Kota Channel is evolving into a platform that Indonesians can use to convey their aspirations for their region and also give constructive criticism to the government. The goal of this tv station is to create an open line of communication between the government and their constituents which will hopefully lead to the faster resolution of problems and quicker implementation of government programs.   

As of the end of 2016 the Company has a relationship in providing the Balai Kota Channel with 1 (one) provincial government, the Jakarta provincial government and the 3 (three) municipal governments of Bandung, Malang and Bogor. In 2017 the Company will expand our participation by establishing a relationship with the municipal governments of Medan and Batam.

Based on data from the Ministry of Health, the number of nurses in Indonesia is on the increase. For example in 2013, there were 288,405 nurses and in 2014 this number increased to 295,508.
