Vivek Neelakantan wrote the standard account on Health and Medicine during the Soekarno era (Science, Public Health and Nation-Building in Soekarno-Era Indonesia (Newcastle upon Tyne: Cambridge Scholars, 2017). 

Wouldn't  it be great to translate this book into Bahasa Indonesia so that Indonesians can read it more easily? Every dollar that you donate to this cause will be used to foot the translation and publication of my book from English to Indonesian so that Indonesian university students,  physicians, medical students, and the wider public can access my book in the local language. The translation project is intended to bridge the knowledge divide between non-Western and Western academia so that the fruits of scientific research are available to all, regardless of nationalities. 

We have a publisher already (KOMPAS). 

Thank you so much for your help. For every A$ 25 donation (which equals Rp 250,000), you will receive a signed copy of my book.

KOMPAS has agreed to commence translation of the book into Bahasa Indonesia towards the end of July.
In the meantime, I have re-inserted the original Bahasa Indonesia quotes into the main text to give the reader a true feel of the story. The pulse of Soekarno's speeches and Indonesian nationalism is best captured in Bahasa Indonesia.

I have a good news for all individual contributors to the project: The third review of my book will be shortly featured in the Social History of Medicine. The book review may be accessed hereunder:

I would like to individually thank each of the donors for your investment in this project. In the meantime, Hans Pols nand myself have raised AUD 2070 of the estimated 2200 AUD costs incurred in connection with production of the book. Every dollar invested in the translation of this monograph would ensure that the fruits of scientific knowledge are shared equitably with the curious human mind, regardless of paywalls imposed by publishers or English language barriers.

Support me in realising my humble dream of making the fruits of scientific knowledge accessible to all international scholars, regardless of their proficiency in English. Thank you to all the donors.

In case you are thinking of making a donation to the project, you may do so via the Go Fund Me website.

Thank you for investing in my research.
