SUMMIT INSTITUTE OF DEVELOPMENT
Yayasan Institut Pengembangan Suara Mitra or also known as the SUMMIT Institute of Development (SID) was legally established in 2007. We work to achieve an improvement in health and human development at the community level through participatory evidence-based decision making and sustainable action. The idea of forming a foundation came from several former Senior Management Team Members of the SUMMIT. The SUMMIT was a large scale randomized controlled trial conducted in Lombok, West Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia with the goal to reduce maternal and infant death in the context of routine prenatal care. The study enrolled nearly 42000 pregnant women and employed around 500 field staff from 2001-2004. The study showed that health can be improved by enhancing routine prenatal care with participatory approaches and evidence-based decisions.

What We Do
We design, implement and analyse large randomized controlled trials with high follow-up rates. We conduct quantitative research and qualitative research such as formative research, Rapid Rural Appraisal, and direct observations in order to improve health programs. We are involved in the development of public health curriculum in Indonesia.
