The entire signing was witnessed by the Deputy Minister of BUMN I, Pahala Nugraha Mansury. During his press statement, he said that Indonesia had learned from the Covid-19 pandemic and how we could avoid it if there is another pandemic to be able to strengthen health infrastructure. "Indonesia currently still has a large enough dependence on other countries, to be able to ensure that the Indonesian people receive health services such as drugs, vaccines, to avoid a pandemic. Therefore today (18/10) the Bio Farma group signed a cooperation agreement to strengthen health infrastructure in Indonesia,” said Pahala.
Pahala continued that the IndoVac vaccine, a Covid-19 vaccine made by Bio Farma, is an example of capacity building in the health industry, all of which we collaborate with outside Indonesia.
Meanwhile, the President Director of Bio Farma, Honesti Basyir, explained that the company has a large enough production capacity to produce 20 million doses of Indovac for the government's booster program and then grow that number to 40 million doses.
"Future production of the IndoVac vaccine will have a total capacity of 120 million doses, which will be adjusted for demand. Since instructed by the Ministry of SOEs, the IndoVac vaccine will be used globally as the moment for Indonesia to assist in containing the pandemic is now, given that there are still shortages of Covid-19 vaccines in the global supply, "Honesti added.
Additionally, at the end of September 2022, Bio Farma just finalized a coorperation agreement for the blood product Recombinant Factor VIII with the British pharmaceutical company ProFactor Pharma in order for Bio Farma to eventually master the technology for the treatment of hemophilia or blood clots.
"This is one of the non-communicable diseases that Bio Farma handles, but it is quite dangerous and needs severe handling," said Honesti.
