The government of Indonesia has been committed to make efforts in achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) as well as strengthening the national poverty reduction programs. Despite this commitment, poverty reduction has been stagnant over the last several decades. By March 2008, 15.4% of population was still remains under the poverty line while another 42% was vulnerable to poverty. Indonesia is also lag behind other countries in the region in several critical MDG indicators related to human capital, such as maternal health, nutrition status, transition rates from primary to junior secondary school especially among the poor, and educational quality. Family of Hope Program (PKH) was first launched by the Indonesian government in 2007. PKH is a social security program that provides cash assistance to very poor families (RTSM) to improve human resource quality by enabling them to access health and education services. PKH also helps to reduce consumption costs of very poor families. In 2013 the National Team for Accelerating Poverty (TNP2K) worked in collaboration with the Center in carrying out a survey to assess PKH impacts overtime on poverty rate, human resource development, and productive capacity. The survey which is named Health Service and Education Survey 2013 was carried out in 6 provinces in Indonesia, such as DIY, DKI Jakarta, West Java, East Java, East Nusa Tenggara, North Sulawesi, and Gorontalo.
