Jakarta (ANTARA) - State-owned Healthcare and Social Security Agency (BPJS Kesehatan) clocked several achievements, including being one of the winners of the 2022 Inhouse Magazine Award in the Government Institution category held by the Press Corporation Union (SPS).

In addition, BPJS Kesehatan simultaneously won three awards during the 2022 Public Relations Indonesia Awards (PRIA), the Agency's Public Relations Head, M. Iqbal Anas Ma'ruf, noted in a statement on Wednesday.

BPJS Kesehatan won the Most Popular in the Print Media Category, Social Media Category, and Profile Video Category during the award event held on March 23-25.

As a public service provider institution, the agency is committed to presenting transparent, easy-to-access, and informative information to the general public, he remarked.

It is not easy to compete with various ministries or institutions that participate in the competition, he remarked.

For the PRIA Awards 2022, some 782 selected works underwent stringent evaluation.

Similarly, hundreds of works from various ministries or institutions were evaluated for the 2022 Inhouse Magazine Award.

"This achievement cannot be clocked without the support and hard work of various parties, including BPJS Kesehatan's Ambassador as well as management," Ma'ruf noted.

"We expect that this achievement will motivate us to improve our performance, including in public communication," he affirmed.

SPS Head Januar P. Ruswita remarked that the 2022 Inhouse Magazine Award is given to several institutions capable of maximizing the inhouse magazine media as one of the functions of public relations.

The winner is evaluated on the basis of his or her capability to maximize criteria, such as content, image, layout, and cover.

Meanwhile, during the PRIA awards held recently, Founder & CEO of PR Indonesia Asmono Wikan noted that digital technology became a solution when public relations had to manage long-distance communication during the COVID-19 pandemic.
