    I have no idea of the area and facilities but common sense seems to be that in your wife's condition maybe the Hospital is the best bet.

    some of the main emergency phone numbers of Indonesia, which you can call for necessary assistance.

    Police Department: 110

    Fire Department: 113

    For quick medical assistance you can dial either 118 or 119.

    I would go to the hospital as soon as possible if you are worried about her condition.

    This certainly doesn't qualify as an emergency requiring a call to such numbers @cgf ;)

    @OP - if it's only low grade fever I suggest taking her to the closest clinic where service might be quicker and asking for the doctor's advice. But anything above 40C or 100F take her to the nearest hospital. That's my common sense advice.

    Go to Rumah Sakit Santo Boromeus (catholic). We used to go there when we lived in Bandung.

    If you have travel insurance contact them (usually free call back to your own country) and ask for their advise. They should be able to get you to an English speaking doctor.

    Sorry @oz, did I comment on your reply?? FYI urgent does not equate to emergency.
