Aditia Nugroho is a policy analyst with 7 years of experience in social health insurance. His interests range from health finance/strategic health purchasing to health systems strengthening.
As health financing officer for Results for Development (R4D), Mr. Nugroho conducts analytical and consultative activities to support Indonesia’s health financing and improve its capacity for strategic health purchasing. His analysis informs the design of provider payment pilots for improved purchasing through Indonesia’s national health insurance (NHI) system.
Prior to his career in NHI implementation, Mr. Nugroho pursued graduate studies concentrating in health policy and management at the University of Southern California, under a USAID scholarship. The program stressed evidence-based analysis and rigorous methods to inform regulations and policymaking, which Mr. Nugroho has put to good use presenting his work at the Patient Classification System International conference in Copenhagen, Denmark, in 2019.
Mr. Nugroho’s education has taken him to rural Indonesia where he saw firsthand health inequities affecting populations living in poverty. His work for the NHI, deployed to remote areas in Indonesia, taught him decentralization policies could be used to improve healthcare access. Additionally, his past work includes managing reimbursements and analyzing health service utilization at hospitals and working with legislature members on local budgeting support for the NHI.
