Outline Although healthcare indicators have shown gradual improvement in Indonesia, the under-five mortality rate, number of hospital beds and medical personnel per capita have not reached WHO standards. Furthermore, the disparity in healthcare between urban and rural areas is evident. Therefore, it is an urgent matter to fairly distribute medical resources and services to achieve the Universal Health Coverage (UHC) challenge. The Ministry of Health in Indonesia has formulated a health strategy plan called RENSTRA 2020-2024 as part of the e-health strategy (2017). This healthcare strategy aims to expand the number of telemedicine-capable facilities from 67 in 2020 to 335 by 2024, by strengthening telemedicine and expanding the infrastructure for digitizing healthcare service.
 In light of this situation, Japan International Cooperation Agency has collaborated with counter-partner hospitals, University of Indonesia Hospital and Hasanuddin University Hospital to contribute to strengthening telemedicine technology in the field of ICU.  This project is aiming to enhance telemedicine for diagnostic support and knowledge and skill sharing in not only the ICU, but also in ophthalmology and obstetrics. The project is expected to reduce health disparities between urban and rural areas. 
 PSD is implementing technical cooperation with Hasanuddin University Hospital as the counterpart to establish a remote medical mechanism that efficiently connects clinics in rural areas with university hospitals through telemedicine devices in ophthalmology and obstetrics.
