Socio-Economic Conditions during the Pandemic





The social and especially economic conditions of the community during the pandemic have begun to decline. The purchasing power of people globally is changing.

The government also provides various policies through breakthroughs through programs in the Ministry to intervene in people's purchasing power, for example through social assistance.

According to CORE Executive Director, Mohammad Faisal, emphasized that cash boost is not a permanent solution in poverty alleviation.

Pandemic Social Assistance

In Faisal's view, World Bank research in September 2019 showed that the Family Hope Program (PKH) had increased school registration by 53 percent for children of recipient families aged 7 to 15 years and had not been registered or had dropped out of school. In addition, reduce the number of children participating in wage work by 48 percent for the research. From a health perspective, babies from PKH recipient families may be 23 percent less likely to suffer from stunting than if they do not receive PKH. The results of this research also show that mothers who are two recipients of PKH encouragement tend to give birth to their children more at health facilities.

The SMERU Research Institute research released in December 2020 created a direct cash push (BLT) that was given during the 2005-2015 period not tested to urge risky attitudes, such as smoking, ending work / reducing working hours, not saving or having no insurance.
