RIVM welcomed a delegation of the Indonesian government and industry led by the Indonesian Minister of Health Ms. Nila Farid Moeloek on 20 June 2019. The delegation visited RIVM laboratories and learned more about Dutch immunisation programmes, health protection and combating infectious diseases and public procurement of pharmaceutical products.

The Indonesian delegation visited RIVM after attending the second ministerial conference on AMR. The international ministerial conference on antimicrobial resistance was organised by the Netherlands on 19 and 20 June in Noordwijk. International cooperation in fighting antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is to be stepped up. Countries will work together more closely in the future, and a fund is being launched to support action against AMR around the world. The Netherlands pledged an initial $5 million to the new fund and will collaborate closely with Indonesia.
