Statista predicts that the digital health market in Indonesia will reach a value of $3.96 billion by 2027, with a strong 13.6% compound annual growth rate.

In the latter part of last year, Tech in Asia released a report indicating that the platform had made available a minimum of 11 drugs, such as those for erectile dysfunction and antipsychotic medication. This occurred despite the  Indonesian Food and drug monitoring agency (BPOM) imposing a ban on their online sale.

Although the company had asserted its non-involvement in directly vending the medicines, BPOM held the stance that electronic pharmaceutical system operators like Halodoc bore responsibility for facilitating the sale of prohibited drugs on their platforms.
