BONSERNEWS.com – Chairman of the Indonesian National Nurses Association (PPNI) Harif Fadhillah said he would conduct a judicial review alias challenge the Law on Health which had just been passed to the Constitutional Court (MK).
Harif said the judicial review step was more realistic than carrying out a national strike against the Health Law.
“So it hasn’t (the national strike), especially since it has been legalized, the most realistic is that we will conduct a judicial review earlier,” said Harif, Wednesday, July 12, 2023.

On the other hand, Harif said that the national strike action could not be carried out only within PPNI because it had to be carried out together with the other four health professional organizations.
The four professional organizations are the Indonesian Doctors Association (IDI), Indonesian Dentists Association (PDGI), Indonesian Midwives Association (IBI), and Indonesian Pharmacist Association (IAI).
