According to UNICEF's Chief of Field Office in Aceh Edouard Beigbeder, these centers strengthen the community based health care system which facilitates a stronger and healthier society resulting in total rehabilitation.

An amount of $11 million has been allotted by UNICEF for the construction of these centers. They have also planned to build 300 schools in this Indonesian island at a cost of $90 million. For UNICEF, this is a maiden attempt in the segment of construction of schools.
