- Rector of Universitas Jenderal Achmad Yani -

Dear Colleagues,
Warmest greeting,

Indonesia is beautiful country with numerous of beautiful nature. On the other hand, Indonesia is also prone to disaster due to its geographical conditions surrounded by the ring of fire. As evidence, Indonesia is one of 35 countries that experience natural disasters on a nearly daily basis. The consequences of a disaster can be serious with significant risks of life and material loss.

Disaster management must therefore be carried out in an integrated, systematic, and standardized manner. Natural disasters or man-made disasters that take place in Indonesia or around the world constantly require the involvement of volunteers. Volunteers have a crucial role in disaster management, and they must be constantly developed.

For the first time ever, Universitas Jenderal Achmad Yani as a higher educational institution will host a disaster-themed activities as a way to live out the vision and mission of Faculty of Medicine. The main agenda of this event is to prepare standardize and resilient volunteers with proper emergency responses.

It is my greatest honor to serve as the Rector of Universitas Jenderal Achmad Yani. This year, we proudly present “The International Major Incident Exercise and Competition in conjunction with The 14th Annual Scientific Meeting Faculty of Medicine Unjani”. May God Almighty bless us and this events.

Prof. Hikmahanto Juwana, SH., LL.M., Ph.D

- Dean of Faculty of Medicine Universitas Jenderal Achmad Yani -

As one of the largest archipelago in the world, Indonesia has a lot of beautiful natural scenery as well as the potential for disaster. The location of Indonesia which is surrounded by the “ring of fire” provides the potential for natural disasters such as volcanic eruptions. In addition, Indonesia also has experienced earthquake, flood, landslide, tsunami in some areas, and extreme weather. Huge population with variety of characters also make Indonesia prone to man-made disaster such as riot, air and water pollution, and fire. As an example, we have just grieved with Kanjuruhan Tragedy in East Java last year.

In 2023, Faculty of Medicine Universitas Jenderal Achmad Yani has reached its 31th anniversary. As a commitment to practice The Tri Dharma of Higher Education, this year we also held “The 14th Scientific Meeting of Unjani Medical Faculty: International Major Incident Emergency Responses”. There will be an International Jamboree, Scientific Meeting, and Dies Natalis in this series of events which is focusing on disaster management. Both international dan national experts will attend and provide knowledge update and workshop on disaster management.

We hope that this events will be beneficial to all participants to improve people awareness as well as skill and knowledge on disaster management. Lastly, we welcome all the participants. May God Almighty bless us in any way.

- Chairman of PIT XIV Faculty of Medicine Universitas Jenderal Achmad Yani -

As an archipelago located at the confluence of four tectonic plates, Indonesia has various potential disasters. The large number of rivers and active volcanoes located in residential areas make Indonesia potentially experience earthquakes, landslides, floods, tsunamis, and volcanic eruptions. Extreme weather and earthquakes that have recently happened in almost all regions of Indonesia are the evidences. In addition to natural disasters, Indonesia also has the potential to experience man-made disasters such as air pollution, fires, traffic accidents, and exposure to hazardous chemicals.

High number of potential disasters in Indonesia makes awareness of disaster necessary for everyone. In accordance with the vision and mission of Faculty of Medicine Universitas Jenderal Achmad Yani in medical emergencies and disaster management, The International Jamboree and Annual Scientific Week (PIT) XIV in conjunction with Dies Natalis 2023 will carry the theme “Update International Disaster Response: Lessons Learned and Share Experiences”. The aim of this event is to increase public awareness and preparedness for disasters so that eventually disaster losses and victims can be minimized.

This year’s series of events will be packaged differently from previous years, consisting of three main activities: international Jamboree, Annual Scientific Week (PIT), and Dies Natalis. The participants will receive knowledge and simulations from experts in the field of disaster management both at the national and international levels. We as the committee wish that this event can run smoothly and all participants gain valuable knowledge and experience from this activities. Lastly, I thank all of you for the support and please enjoy the whole events.

- General Information -

         Indonesia is the largest archipelagic country in the world with an area of 1,910,931 km² stretching from Sabang to Merauke, from Miangas Island to Rote Island. Geographically, Indonesia is located in a strategic position, at the crossroads of two continents (Asian and Australian Continent) and two oceans (Indian and Pacific Ocean). This makes Indonesia rich in cultural diversity and traditions as well as having fertile soil and beautiful natural scenery. That is what causes Indonesia to become one of the most popular tourism destinations worldwide. However, its beautiful nature and geographic conditions make Indonesia also prone to various disasters.

         Disasters can be caused by natural events (natural disasters) or by human activities (man-made disasters). According to the United Nations International Strategy for Disaster Reduction (UN-ISDR), disasters can be categorized into geological hazards, hydrometeorological hazards, biological hazards, technological hazards, and environmental degradation.

         Indonesia is located at the confluence of four tectonic plates: The Asian Continental plate, The Australian Continental plate, The Indian Ocean plate, and The Pacific Ocean plate. Indonesia is also traversed by the ring of fire in the form of two mountain paths i.e. The Circum-Pacific Belt in the east and The Mediterranean mountains in the west. This causes Indonesia to have 127 active volcanoes and more than 5,000 rivers which 30% of them pass through highly populated areas, making Indonesia a disaster-prone country. In the southern and eastern parts of Indonesia there is a volcanic belt (volcanic arc) that extends from Sumatra, Java, Nusa Tenggara, to Sulawesi, which are old volcanic mountains and lowlands at the side, some are dominated by swamps. These conditions are highly potential to cause volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, tsunamis, floods, and landslides. A study states that Indonesia is one of the countries that has a high level of seismicity in the world, ten times higher than The United States. Earthquakes caused by the interaction of tectonic plates can cause tidal waves if they occur in the ocean. With an area that is heavily affected by the movement of these tectonic plates, Indonesia also frequently experiences tsunamis in some areas.

         As an archipelago, Indonesia consists of 17,508 islands, most of them face the open sea with a coastline of more than 81,000 km. Indonesia has a tropical climate with two seasons, dry and rainy, causing extreme changes in weather, temperature, and wind direction. These geographical factors potentially cause hydrometeorological disasters such as floods, landslides, droughts, extreme weather (hurricanes), extreme waves and abrasion as well as fires.

         Important issues related to disaster potential is high population growth and demographic diversity in Indonesia. Indonesian population in January 2023 reach 273.52 million people consisting of various ethnicities, groups, religions, and customs. On the other hand, the pace of development has resulted in an increase in people’s access to science and technology. The negative impact of construction is the exploitation of natural resources, especially on a large scale. This results in ecosystem damage which often causes an increase risk of disasters such as forest fires and landslides.

          The uneven distribution of the population which tends to be concentrated in several areas has resulted in the formation of densely populated settlements in big cities. Densely populated settlements in urban areas cause various forms of environmental pollution such as air pollution, water pollution by industrial and household waste, and garbage accumulation. This causes a decrease in water and air quality and the risk of flooding. Dense settlements accompanied by non-standard building structures and lack of road access will make it easier for fire to spread when fire occurs at one point. Fragile building structures can also increase the risk of loss in an earthquake.

           Along with the high population growth in Indonesia, infrastructure development is also growing rapidly. This is also supported by the massive use of technology, especially social media, which facilitates the information spread and people mobilization to access any kind of attraction. This can be a potential disaster if not accompanied by proper regulations and people awareness. As an example, The Itaewon tragedy in South Korea, which was originally intended to celebrate Halloween, ended up being a man-made disaster that killed 159 people and injured 196 people. In Indonesia, a similar incident occurred in Kanjuruhan. The soccer match between Arema FC and Persebaya took the lives of 132 people, 596 victims with minor and moderate injuries, and 26 victims with major injuries.

           Considering high number of disasters and consequences arising from disasters, both natural disasters and man-made disasters, public awareness needs to be increased. For this reason, it is necessary to organize a special forum for disaster education for doctors, other health care providers, and general population. In the end, it is hoped that all layers of society will become more aware of all potential disasters so that losses and casualties can be minimized.
