Two Australian companies have secured a $US1 billion ($1.3 billion) deal to build and operate 650 healthcare clinics and 23 hospitals across Indonesia's most populous province.
Canberra-based Aspen Medical and Sydney's Docta will formally sign the agreement this week with the West Javan government, adding more than 6000 beds to the province of 50 million people.
The deal will see Aspen and Docta partner with state-owned enterprise PT Jasa Sanara to develop healthcare infrastructure to meet growing demand in Indonedia's universal health coverage system, established in 2014.
