The Master’s Degree Reproductive Health Sciences Study Program (IKR JM) was established in 1993 and began with an effort to prepare the andrology profession with a Masters’s degree with most of the participants coming from the medical profession who would take andrology expertise. However, in the last 10 years, the Fertility Andrology and Endocrinology subspecialty related to In vitro fertilization has been established as a subspecialty program. IKR JM participants are currently dominated by midwives and nurses and the challenges they face are also increasingly diverse.
Most of the IKR JM graduates returned to their profession as teaching students so their role and expertise function as a master of reproductive health was not disclosed in accordance with the Special Instructional Objectives of Education for Reproductive Health. It is realized that the ratio of maternal mortality in Indonesia is 359/100 thousand live births.
