The actions of this woman who is a specialist in the field of heart emerged when she had a confrontation with an international health organization (WHO). The anxiety that arises is due to the lack of transparency and clarity regarding the bird flu virus pandemic that has attacked Southeast Asia, especially he highlighted how the procedure for sending virus samples from Indonesia could not be accounted for after WHO finished researching in Hong Kong, its official representative laboratory.

Dr. dr. Siti Fadilah Supari, Sp.JP (K) is an academic who gave his life for the medical world, he is a specialist in heart and cardiology. His contribution with Harapan Kita Hospital is more than 25 years. His role was even more intense when he was trusted to be the Head of the Indonesian Heart Foundation Research Unit and Head of the Research Center for the Harapan Kita Heart Hospital.
The busy wife of Ir. Muhammad Supari outside the hospital environment is teaching at the University of Indonesia. This profession was the beginning of his career. He teaches in cardiology. He was also selected as a visiting lecturer at the Faculty of Public Health at the University of Indonesia and a visiting lecturer and visiting lecturer at the graduate epidemiology department.
He earned a bachelor's degree at the Faculty of Medicine, Gadjah Mada University, class of 1972. Then he earned his master and doctoral degrees at the University of Indonesia in different years.

Siti Fadilah Supari was appointed as Minister of Health for United Indonesia I for the 2004 to 2009. After serving as Minister of Health, she entered into Member of the Presidential Advisory Council for the Health and Welfare Sector of the People from 2010 to 2014.
Siti Fadilah against WHO to Bill Gates
"My enemy was big, so I lost. I wasn't wrong, but I lost," said his defense when Deddy Corbuzier managed to meet him during his spare time during his treatment at the Army Hospital, Gatot Subroto, Central Jakarta, May 2020.
The argument came out due to WHO's a priori attitude which was too quick to conclude what happened in Tanah Karo, North Sumatra, due to the transmission of the bird flu virus, no longer just a bird, but has turned into a human to human transmission (human to human). Obviously he rejected it raw, because it was too early and careless to assume.
WHO's defense is based on the aspect of epidemiology, it cannot be an accurate scientific basis. Meanwhile, Siti Fadilah, assisted by the Eijkman institution, stated that the bird flu virus has not mutated and is capable of human-to-human transmission. From here until later he dared to show that the Indonesian government could not be politicized through a pandemic labeling game.
If there has been human-to-human transmission according to WHO, it is simply certain that the first victims to fall are medical officers who are at the forefront of dealing directly with victims of bird flu, he thought simply.
Then the second thing, he challenged the clarity and transparency of how the virus sharing procedure has been sent to the WHO laboratory in Hong Kong. Because his suspicions were grounded, when the results he tried himself in the Research and Development laboratory with the WHO results were no different. A critical question arose that bothered him, why did he have to wait 5-6 days to get the results?
Then while waiting, a trader came from a large pharmaceutical industry corporation offering a bird flu diagnostic rapid test . Surprisingly, the reference method for the virus sample instead used a virus strain from Vietnam, which was not the same as what was found in Indonesia. He smelled that there was a game among the WHO with the vaccine-producing corporations and the like. Because, when the virus sample is sent, then it undergoes a risk assessment , then makes a diagnosis, the seed virus is created. The last part will be used to make the vaccine.
So, Siti Fadilah smelled a game with a scheme: viruses occur in epidemic countries, WHO asks virus samples to do research first in their lab, then within 5-6 days after that the results of the research can be known, afterwards because there is no clarity. and weak supervision of donor countries, it is unclear what to do with the virus. This is where the health business process will be seen later, where vaccines are made by developed countries and countries suffering from the epidemic are required to buy products from their corporations.
Later, in the midst of the Corona virus, he strongly advised the government and the public not to want to follow Bill Gates' advice. Philanthropist who transferred most of his wealth as the biggest donor to WHO, through The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (TBMF).
Reported by Forbes , the foundation that has been established since 2000 has agreed to donate 300 million dollars for the prevention of the COVID-19 pandemic globally through WHO as the executor in the field.
Grants his money in very large amounts, making the position of a Bill Gates as the most influential and powerful doctor in the world, taking refuge behind the WHO.
Return to Siti Fadilah. Through his stubbornness and ignorance of negotiations, that whenever WHO asks to send H5N1 virus specimen samples from Indonesia, it must be completed with a material transfer agreement (MTA). If there is no agreement, there will be no delivery. Because through the MTA, WHO or whoever the non-profit organization receiving virus samples can only use it for research activities, and cannot be commercialized.
Siti Fadilah only wants to send H5N1 Virus specimen samples if WHO completes the material transfer agreement (MTA). With the existence of MTA, then WHO or any country receiving virus samples can only use it for research activities, and commercialization is strictly prohibited.
As a result of the resistance of a Siti Fadilah Supari, forcing WHO to finally revise the rules for virus sharing in the world, so that it is more transparent and respects the sovereign rights of Indonesia and other countries involved. Through his cleverness in diplomacy seeking sponsorship support from various countries which he deems capable of helping him for a better world, he has had sweet results. Because of that, bringing the name Indonesia into the executive committee of WHO, an institution that regulates the procedure for virus problems and its handling.
The birth of the Sharing Influenza Viruses and Access to Vaccine , which binds WHO members and the private sector and the pharmaceutical industry to protect global public health with the principles of equality, transparency, fairness, and benefits to all parties.
Until he felt the need for a scientific work to report what was really happening in the world of global health, his own book of deafness was released, "Time for the World to Change, God's Hand is Behind the Bird Flu Virus." This book - said Siti Fadilah - is scientific. He deliberately invited four panelists from the scientific community to dissect all the arguments in it. The four scientists came from Airlangga University Surabaya, namely Prof. Rika Subarniati, dr. SKM., Dr. Teguh Sylvaranto, dr, Sp.An KIC; Dr. JFPalilingan, dr.SpP (K) and Drs. Bagong Suyanto, Msi,
Siti Fadilah Supari was not an arbitrary figure who was invited by SBY to enter his first government. Siti Fadilah is known as a woman who is firm, straightforward, and wants Indonesia and its people to enjoy fair and easy health facilities.
Bird flu virus samples that have been sent to the WHO reference laboratory in Hong Kong, are secretly sold to developed countries. The price of the bird flu virus is sold at around 90 trillion per virus type. Meanwhile, since avian influenza hit the country, Indonesia has sent 58 samples.
The Role of NAMRU-2 Engagement
Long before the issue of the virus pandemic, the existence of the role of NAMRU-2 (NR-2) in Indonesia was actually suspected of being spying. Benefit foreign parties in various sectors, health, military, intelligence and defense. On further investigation, NR-2 really has the privilege of trampling on the sovereignty of this nation.
The US Naval Medical Research Unit Two, the United States Navy Medical Services Unit, is known as NAMRU-2 (NR-2). A unit of research institute belonging to the United States under the responsibility of the Navy that focuses on conducting scientific research research studies on infectious diseases in tropical climates. Its existence has existed in Indonesia since 1970 at the request of the Indonesian Ministry of Health at that time.
Suspicion towards the laboratory, which employs 20 staff of US nationals and 168 Indonesian nationals, was increasingly rampant in 2007. On the grounds that in the name of scientific research, NR-2 is sadly inhabited by foreign military staff. Non-Indonesian foreign staff has untouchable diplomatic immunity because they are under the direct jurisdiction of the United States Embassy. So, NR-2 staff are free to go back and forth as they please at any time without being allowed to be touched by Indonesian law enforcement agencies.
Admittedly by Rear Admiral (Purn) Subardo, former Head of the National Encryption Agency for the period 1986-1998 with 30 years of experience in the intelligence sector. It's clear that the NR-2 is a US intelligence tool behind the cover of a research lab.
According to research by the Institute of Medicine, NR-2 has collected about 300 virus samples in Indonesia in 2001. Virus samples obtained from all hospitals in Indonesia.
The Minister of Health's mother was getting more upset because she had been refused entry to the NR-2 laboratory in the State Printing area, Central Jakarta. In fact, the building stands on the land chosen by the Ministry of Health. To the peak of Siti Fadilah's dislike of NR-2 in Indonesia, clearly undermining Indonesian sovereignty in his own home.
There is something unique whether it is a coincidence, after the end of the MoU between the US and Indonesian governments regarding NR-2, Indonesia was stricken by the bird flu virus pandemic. The activities of NR-2 finally ended and was closed through the decision of Siti Fadilah with the Decree of the Minister of Health Number 919 of 2009.
Travel As Minister of Health
His achievement while serving as Minister of Health of the Republic of Indonesia in SBY's cabinet was somewhat progressive. His policy is sufficient to help SBY in the people's health sector. Siti Fadilah Supari's previous experience faced the bird flu virus pandemic, helping the failure of swine flu (H1N1) to attack Indonesia in 2009.
He strengthened efforts to cultivate a clean and healthy life in order to prevent the spread of environmentally-based diseases through the Decree of the Minister of Health of the Republic of Indonesia Number 852 of 2008.

Require standardization for all hospitals to have an Emergency Unit in Indonesia for services accompanied by rapid handling for the public through the Decree of the Minister of Health of the Republic of Indonesia Number 852 of 2008
Under his leadership, the Ministry of Health managed to anticipate the spread of the bird flu epidemic and reduce the highest retail price of drugs at that time. How can the Public Health Insurance (Jamkesmas) public health program serve the public without being charged any fees, so that the state treasury funds are admittedly collected and recorded neatly worth Rp. 51 trillion.
Whereas in order to optimize and integrate all health nursing efforts at the Puskesmas so that the services provided are quality, holistic and comprehensive, a guideline is needed. It was developed by Ministerial Decree Number 279 of 2006. He also initiated standardization related to the radiographer profession by Decree of the Minister of Health Number 375 of 2007.
When dealing with the bird flu virus, he prepared six steps on a national scale as a step out. By preparing 44 units of referral hospitals throughout Indonesia for cases of avian flu of the H5N1 type and 8 laboratory units in eight important provinces in Indonesia for specimen testing of victim patients. Emphasizing the importance of a management procedure that must be fast and very easy.
It doesn't stop there. His persistence continues by pursuing WHO to return the 58 virus samples that have been sent.
The Indonesian Minister of Health has chosen a weapon that has proven to be more useful than the world's best vaccine in tackling the threat of the bird flu virus, namely transparency, "
After leaving his position as Minister of Health, SBY appointed Endang Rahayu Sedyaningsih. Endang Rahayu, during her assignment, was also transferred by Siti Fadilah when she was caught carrying virus samples outside Indonesia.
