UNICEF Indonesia consists of its headquarters in Jakarta, five field offices and two sub-offices.  The programmatic focus of each field office is determined by regional needs and priorities. Initiatives are carried out in tandem with subnational government and civil society partners at both the provincial and district level.


The field offices are key to UNICEF’s work. They support the organization’s efforts to model innovative approaches for children’s rights in low- and middle-income communities, both in rural and urban settings. In line with UNICEF’s equity approach, the programme recognizes Indonesia’s efforts to “develop from the periphery”, while maintaining work in high-population areas such as Java and Sumatra where most of Indonesia’s children live.


The focus areas for the five field offices are:


Surabaya, East Java: health, child protection, education, partnerships and fundraising (with additional work in Central Java province).


Banda Aceh, Aceh: social policy, health, child protection.


Kupang, East Nusa Tenggara: health, education, child protection (with additional work in West Nusa Tenggara province)


Makassar, South Sulawesi: health, education, child protection (with additional work in Maluku and North Maluku provinces, and a sub-office in Ambon)


Jayapura, Papua: health, education, child protection (with additional work in West Papua province, and a sub-office in Manokwari)
