Prior to 2001, the Indonesian government conducted several programs to enchance the quality of health services at health centers 1. One of these initiatives was to improve the skill of nurses and midwives in providing health services by using the Clinical Algorithms (CAs). A CA is a step-by-step problem-solving procedure for clinical services that guides nurses/midwives to arrive at a diagnosis and treatment. Th e Indonesian government provides CAs because doctors are used in managerial roles at government health centers. As a result nurses and midwives must provide most of the health services. For that reason, the Indonesian Medical Association (IMA) and the Indonesian Nurse Association (INA), in collaboration with the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare and with the support of the World Bank, developed 15 CAs for nurses and midwives to implement in government health centers to improve the quality of services.
