SUPPORT FOR INDONESIAN MEDICAL PROFESSIONAL
Most countries in the world have experienced Covid-19 global pandemic, including Indonesia with increasing positive cases. One that has a big impact is the increasing task and role of medical personnel who are striving to fight against this case.
Therefore, as a part of support for the struggle of the medical personnel, IMEDCO through their teams throughout Indonesia moved quickly to organize a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program by distributing donations in the form of PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) to all Hospitals in Indonesia. IMEDCO highly appreciates all medical personnel who have been partners to improve the health of the Indonesian people. PPE was chosen because it became one of the items that was needed by medical personnel every day and became quite difficult to obtain during the pandemic. Patient’s safety which is the responsibility of the medical staff, is proportional to the high risk of his health to infected by Covid-19.
This activity has already begun and will continue as long as the pandemic period, so at least the burden of medical personnel will be slightly reduced as a joint task of all parties who have to work together, join hands together and unite against Covid-19.
Thank you, our hero.
All Medical Personnel that Fighting for All Indonesian People.
Our Prayers and Support Always Accompany Your Sincerity.
We hope that this temptation passes soon.
Together We Can.
IMEDCO Goes to Kindergarten
It is a privilege for Imedco to be invited by Jakarta Nanyang School (JNY) to share about the process of research and manufacturing of medicine to the kindergarten students. The event was attended by more than 120 students. They are very eager to know how a drug is manufactured.
During the event, Imedco explained that there are various healthcare professionals and one of that is pharmacist who is responsible to dispense and give a consultation about medicine. Imedco further explained that the process to manufacture a drug, is started with a research. A ‘small trial’ on how to create an acceptable formula for children was conducted during the event. Many students were excited to participate in the trial and they created orange and grape flavor syrup. At the same time, we also expose them to various pharmaceutical dosage forms such as tablets and capsules.
This event is aimed to give understanding to the children on how a drug is manufactured and that patient convenience of the medical regime is a factor that we always take into account. We hope that some of them will become good healthcare professionals in the future.

Imedco Djaja received the GMP Certificate
Imedco Djaja has received the Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) Certificates in April 2016 from Indonesia National Agency of Drug and Food Control (NADFC ). The issued certificates cover solid (tablet and capsule), semisolid, and liquid facilities. The certificates were obtained through hard work and team work, and IMEDCO is thankful to have such a dedicated team. We are also grateful for the support of the NADFC who has support us through all the process.
These certificates are a new phase for IMEDCO to impact the Indonesian healthcare. We are committed to produce innovative and high quality products to meet the needs of doctors, pharmacists, and other medical practitioners in serving the community.
Imedco Djaja had been audited by NADFC
In November 2015, Imedco Djaja has completed its total renovation and added new facilities that had taken place since October 2014. Now, Imedco has production facilities for solid, liquid and semisolid products. It is also supported with key facilities such as HVAC and Purified Water System according to the prevailing requirements. These critical facilities are as important as the whole facility inside the production plant; without any of these it is impossible to produce high quality products.
This facility came about as a result of Imedco’s commitment to invest in the country’s infrastructure by modernizing the national pharmaceutical industry and comply with the current national and international regulations. This facility will allow Imedco to meet the growth of local and regional demands for medicines. This in turn, positions Imedco to successfully compete within a new, globalized scenario by fulfilling strong international commitments.
As soon as the renovation and addition of facility has finished, Imedco requested a Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) audit to the National Agency of Food, Drug, and Cosmetics (NADFC ). The audit took place in the end of November 2015 and we are now progressing for the final review. We will soon be awarded a certificate of Compliance with GMP so that Imedco may start to contribute to the Indonesian healthcare system.
