(Community-Public Health & Malaria Control (C-PHMC) Freeport Indonesia)
Company implements programs for education and training, prevention, counseling, diagnosis and treatment in public health and malaria control.
Costs (money, resources, etc.):
In 2010, the LPMAK contributed approximately $12 million to community healthcare programs, including the operation of two fully functional community hospitals.
PT Freeport Indonesia (PTFI) provides confidential HIV/AIDS Voluntary Counseling and Testing (VCT) services for employees and community members; more than 2,950 employees and 1,500 community members underwent VCT in 2010.
In cooperation with the local government and the Amungme and Kamoro Community Development Organization (LPMAK), PTFI operates a TB clinic in Timika that provides active TB case detection and treatment by implementing the Direct Observed Treatment Short-Course Method.
PTFI also implements a world-class integrated malaria control program in its project area and surrounding communities. All slide-confirmed malaria cases are treated with high quality artemesinin combination treatment (ACT) drugs at clinic sites and in the community.
The policy focuses on six areas:
- Cooperation with the Indonesian Government in tackling HIV/AIDS in the workplace
- Study on prevalence
- Preventive campaigns
- Handling procedure for infected patients
- Formation of HIV-AIDS committee
- Anti-discrimination policy towards infected patients
The malaria control program targets several neighborhoods in Mimika, which are home to many PTFI employees. The program also serves the communities that were relocated by PTFI during the construction phase of the local mine. In 2008, PTFI and LPMAK, a community based organization, expanded malaria control activities into the remote rural areas of the Mimika Regency, particularly the lowland areas that do not receive adequate malaria prevention services.
In 2010, PHMC provided HIV/AIDS training for more than 7,700 community members and 6,600 employees, a 29% increase compared with 2009.
Also in 2010, PHMC community clinics and PTFI employee health facilities diagnosed and treated approximately 17,800 employees and community members for malaria (a 26% decrease compared with 2009). The number of malaria cases treated at the local LPMAK community hospital decreased by 6% to nearly 39,300 cases.
Malaria remains amongst the top killer diseases in the Mimika Regency of Indonesia, particularly in the lowland areas. According to RSMM (Mitra Masyarakat), a public hospital in the Mimika Regency, malaria is the second most common health problem after acute respiratory tract infection since 2005.

TFM also provides support for employees and their families through a robust HIV/AIDS prevention, counseling and treatment program.
All confirmed malaria cases from the workforce and their dependents are treated with ACT drugs at clinics on site. In 2010, a total of 750 malaria cases in employees/dependents were diagnosed and treated.
The average prevalence rate of 31% from the May 2010 school survey indicated a decrease of 9% in malaria prevalence compared with the previous year (May 2009) survey and a 60% decrease compared with the baseline (pre-control) survey conducted in 2007.

Malaria prevalence surveys among local school children are conducted twice a year to establish the impact of intervention measures.
