Pencerah Nusantara to boost progress on MDGs: Envoy
Ufara Zuwasti from the office of the special envoy to the President of the Republic of Indonesia for the Millenium Development Goals (MDGs) said on Monday that the office was gearing up for significant progress toward achieving the MDG targets as there were only two years left ahead the 2015 deadline.
She said that Pencerah Nusantara was one of programs the office was currently working on to improve the health of local people, particularly those who lived in remote areas.

The data will include the status of people's health, education, employment and others factors pertaining to local people,” said Ufara on the sidelines of a visit to The Jakarta Post offices.
