The purpose of this review is to provide a forward-focused evaluation of the USAID-funded Health Services Program (HSP) in Indonesia. The evaluation has two principal objectives:

1. To achieve a thorough understanding of the outcomes and results of HSP interventions and the effectiveness of HSP strategies in achieving results in the focus areas (advocacy, behavior change, role of private sector midwives, and technical support to the Government of Indonesia [GOI]).

2. To develop recommendations for future activities and implementation strategies for immediate and midterm time frames consistent with USAID/Indonesia’s commitment to Ministry of Health (MOH) priorities in maternal, neonatal, and child health (MNCH) (i.e. achieving Millennium Development Goals [MDGs] 4 and 5); building health system capacity where it can be directly linked to positive impact on MNCH outcomes; working closely with a broad range of civil society partners; and forging productive relationships with the private sector.
