Sepuluh bulan telah berlalu sejak program RW Siaga Plus+ diluncurkan pada September 2009. Setelah melalui tahap perencanaan, sosialisasi, pembentukan pokja dan berbagai pelatihan, saat inihampir sampai pada tahap pembangunan infrastruktur di empat kelurahan terpilih: Duri Kosambi, Duri Utara, Pekojan di Jakarta Barat dan Margahayu di Bekasi.
   
Melalui publikasi Gaung RW Siaga Plus+ yang terdiri dari dua bahasa ini (Indonesia & Inggris), redaksi mengajak pembaca untuk melihat apa yang telah dan sedang dilakukan. Program RW Siaga Plus+ yang didanai oleh USAID tidak akan berjalan baik tanpa keterlibatan dan dukungan pemerintah daerah baik di tingkat kelurahan, kecamatan, maupun kotamadya. Wawancara dengan Bapak Walikota Jakarta Barat, Ir. H. Mas Djoko Ramadhan akan mewakili potret dukungan pemerintah daerah dalam pelaksanaan RW Siaga Plus+ demi terwujudnya masyarakat perkotaan yang berperilaku bersih dan sehat serta mempunyai cukup akses terhadap fasilitas air bersih dan sanitasi. Begitu juga keterlibatan pemerintah kelurahan dan wakil Puskesmas yang bersama warga tergabung dalam Pokja Kelurahan dan memfasilitasi pelaksanaan RW Siaga Plus+ juga akan ditampilkan pada edisi perdana ini.
