The cultural diversity, its archipelago, and the major religion being Muslim have all influenced the development of the healthcare in Indonesia. The authors' objective is to describe the evolution of the healthcare system in Indonesia. Community-based health service, called puskesmas, is the key of the healthcare service in the country. The World Health Organization estimated that 64% of all deaths in Indonesia are caused by noncommunicable diseases, which might relate to the mostly unorganized prehospital care system. The healthcare system in Indonesia continues to improve its care delivery and outcomes by an escalation in the number of health services.
