KIMIA FARMA IN BRIEF
Kimia Farma was the first pharmaceutical industry company in Indonesia established by the Dutch Indies Government in 1817. The name of this company was originally NV Chemicalien Handle Rathkamp & Co. Based on the policy of nationalization of ex Dutch companies at the beginning of the independence period; the Government of the Republic of Indonesia merged in 1958 a number of pharmaceutical companies into PNF Bhinneka Kimia Farma. Then, on 16 August 1971, the form of PNF as legal entity was changed to Limited Liability Company and the company’s name was changed to PT Kimia Farma (Persero).
The health market map has been disrupted along with the implementation of the Health BPJS program. Because, now people who are sick can be covered with BPJS. This has an impact on the Kimia Farma business process, which originally lived from the government market sector.
"So, what used to be Kimia Farma provided drugs that treat sick people, now (the medicine) has been handled by BPJS. We actually can no longer get patients if we don't do anything, "said Pujianto, Director of Kimia Farma's Business Development at the National Workshop Series on Innovation and Technology in Jakarta on Wednesday (1/16/2019).
Estimates that the rupiah exchange rate will be more stable and stronger this year are certainly good news for pharmaceutical producers. PT Kimia Farma Tbk (KAEF) is no exception, with most of the raw materials obtained from imports.
Ganti Winarno, Corporate Secretary of KAEF, said that the company is quite optimistic this year will be better than last year. "Regarding the exchange rate, of course, all pharmaceutical industry players will have a positive impact considering that most of the pharmaceutical raw materials are still imported," he explained to Kontan.co.id, Thursday (1/17).
PT Kimia Farma (Persero) Tbk or Kimia Farma also supports the development of economic independence among Islamic boarding schools. Through the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program of Santri Empowerment, Kimia Farma synergizes with the Baitul Maal Hidayatullah National Amil Zakat Institution (LAZNAS BMH) to realize the Hydroponic Nutrition Garden at the Hidayatullah Islamic Boarding School in Depok, West Java
