JAKARTADAILY.ID - PT Bio Farma, the holding company for pharmaceutical state-owned companies in Indonesia, aims to export its novel Oral Polio Vaccine type 2 (nOPV2) after it secured purchasing contracts with the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) for this year and the next.
The Indonesian State-Owned Enterprises (SOE) Minister Erick Thohir had previously said that in line with the theme of the G20 Indonesia's presidency, "Recover Together, Recover Stronger”, it is important for the Indonesian state-owned enterprises to lead through concrete actions that are realized through various strategic initiatives and large scale transformations to create global impacts.
“UNICEF is buying the nOPV2 via multilateral means. The nOPV2 is part of the efforts to prevent the spread of polio disease in the world. Bio Farma’s success to export the nOPV2 means we have contributed to the global health industry, as we are able to provide stockpiles (of vaccines) for the world’s needs,” Honesti said.
