As the loan provides Indonesia with the foreign currency for importation in the form of cofinancing with ADB, it will contribute, as an immediate effect, to improving its deteriorating international balance of payments resulting from the economic crisis spread through Asia. It will also contribute to mitigate the effects of the economic crisis on the poor and the socially vulnerable groups on health and nutrition aspects through assisting the implementation of the Health and Nutrition Sector Development Program which the Indonesian government has developed with the help of ADB and other donors.
