Abstract

Laru is a traditional alcoholic beverage from NTT obtained from the fermentation of palm tree sap (Borassus flabellifer). Alcohol is a risk factor for someone suffering from hypertension because alcohol has the same effect as carbon dioxide which can increase blood acidity and cortisol levels so that the blood becomes thicker and the heart is forced to pump blood throughout the body, resulting in hypertension. Hypertension is a condition of a person's blood pressure of 140/90 mmHg. The purpose of this study was to analyze the type, amount, frequency and duration of consumption of laru with the incidence of hypertension in East Penfui Village in 2019. This research method is a case control study. The sample consisted of 40 cases and 40 controls with a ratio of 1: 1. Data analysis was performed with univariate analysis and bivariate analysis with chi square test. The thesis shows that the factors associated with hypertension are laru type (ρ = 0.004; OR = 5.127) and duration of laru consumption (ρ = 0.016; OR = 3.857), while unrelated factors are the amount of laru consumption (ρ = 0.252) and laru consumption frequency (ρ = 0.654). The community is expected to reduce consumption of laru so that they can avoid hypertension. Penfui Timur Village can make efforts to control alcohol so that alcohol consumption in the community can be controlled and does not cause health problems.

The research is was quantitative study using a cross-sectional design. The sample consisted of 85 people obtained by a purposive sampling technique. Data analysis employed using univariate and bivariate methods with the chi-square test. The results showed that factors related to JKN card utilization were knowledge (ρ =0.023), income (ρ = 0.037), the availability of facilities and infrastructure (ρ = 0.043), and disease complaints (ρ = 0.041), while unrelated factor was family support (ρ= 0.662). The community should maximize the use of JKN card to obtain comprehensive health services, not only for treatment, but also for prevention to improve their health status.

Abstract

Vasectomy is a contraceptive method for men or families who no longer want children. This method has a success rate of 99.8% and is very safe to use. Nevertheless, the number of men’s participation in the family planning program (KB), especially vasectomy, in Kupang was significantly low. Only 78 of 893 men who participated in KB were vasectomy acceptors. This fact was different from the number of participants for tubectomy in the city, which reached 2.687 acceptors in 2019. Practically, surgery for tubectomy is more complicated than vasectomy surgery. This study aimed to explore the reasons some husbands decided to participate in vasectomy. This research was a qualitative study with five informants. The results showed that the informants had both good understanding and positive attitude towards vasectomy. Also, the informants obtained socio-cultural support, easy access to the place of health services, and their spouses’ support in vasectomy participation. Socialization on vasectomy should address benefits, side effects, and other factors causing vasectomy to be considered taboo by the public. This will help change people’s incorrect mindset about vasectomy and increase the number of vasectomy participation. Keywords: Vasectomy, Husband, Participation, Support, Access
