More than 200 health workers have yet to receive the promised financial incentives for their work on the frontlines of Indonesia’s pandemic response throughout 2022, independent data initiative LaporCOVID-19 has found.

The organization received a total of 241 reports regarding late payment of the incentives, a majority of which were filed by health workers in West Java and East Java and who mostly worked either in private hospitals or hospitals owned by regional administrations.

“While some people in the reports said that they had their incentives reduced, most in the reports said they had [their incentives] stopped. They might have received it in 2021, but they did not receive any in 2022,” LaporCOVID-19 researcher Siswo Mulyartono told a press briefing on Sunday.
