- Accountability, Papua’s special autonomy funds
The death of 72 residents of the Asmat regency in Januari 2018 revealed the latent problems of health and welfare in the province of Papua. Tens of trillions of budgets disbursed by the central government each year did not increase the quality of health and welfare of the Asmat population. Cases of malnutrition still appear every year. The patient’s mortality rate is five times above the national average. The flushing of Papua special autonomy fund should be able to improve the degree of health and welfare of the Papuans. This paper aims to explain the accountability in the management of Papua’s special autonomy funds in Asmat regency in the 2015-2018 period. The results of the study show that the accountability in the management of the Papua Special Autonomy Funds in Asmat district still leaves a lot of problems, both in terms of financial accountability and policy decision accountability. There is no horizontal and vertical accountability. The allocation of Papua's special autonomy funds for education and health is too low. The results of the study can be used as inputs for policy makers and policy implementers in Papua so that special autonomy funds can be used to improve the degree of health and welfare, especially in the Asmat regency.
