(4/9/2012)

Seputar Indonesia (RCTI) reports that a lack of quality in staff working at community health centers (puskesmas) is to blame for the high maternal death rates among birthing mothers in Bali.

In 2011 there was an alarming increase of mothers dying during the birthing process. For every 1,000 births in Bali 100 mothers did not survive the process, a total that doubled from the 50 deaths for every 1,000 birthing mothers in the previous year 2010.

The highest maternal death rates were recorded in Buleleng, followed by Karangasem and Badung, according to the head of the Bali Health Service, Nyoman Sutedja. Sutedja admitted that the low quality of personnel assigned to health centers and poor health infrastructure all contributed to the poor quality of health care.

“We often encounter that our health workers are late in handling a case and referring it to the closest hospital,” explained Sutedja. He said this was due to the uneven distribution of doctors in Bali. From a total of 6,800 doctors on the island, 2,800 work in the capital of Denpasar. The are only 570 doctors covering eight more remote regencies in Bali.
