Why, because one of National Mid-term Development Plan (RPJMN) is to decrease maternal mortality and child mortality rate and we know that many child birth and neo natal died due to diarrhoea and pneumonia. Therefore, with rotavirus vaccination and PCV vaccination, we expect able to decrease maternal mortality and child mortality rate significantly and by its per capita relatively cheaper.
