Rights & wellbeing of children in Indonesia's orphanages To date, there has been only limited scholarly research into the impacts of panti asuhan on children and families. Important initial contributions have been made from disciplines such as social anthropology, psychology and psychiatry.
Knowledge gaps More research is needed to better understand all aspects of panti asuhan, in particular, how these places impact on childhood development, wellbeing and rights, as well as on trajectories in later life. Another under-studied area relates to the impacts on families (for example, on parents and siblings) caused by separation from children who are placed in panti asuhan.
