Abstract

Adolescents’ pregnancy negatively impacts their health and their babies, also gives socio-economics impacts and risks of premature birth, low birth weight (LBW) and bleeding that can increase maternal and infant mortality. This study aims to determine the relationship of education level with the pregnancy at the age of adolescence. This research using observational analytic design with cross-sectional to recognize the relationship between education level ties and pregnancy at the age of adolescence. The subject of this research is pregnant women in the North Coast Region of Indramayu who meet the inclusion criteria and are willing to sign the consent form after being given an explanation. The samples of 200 pregnant women were taken using consecutive sampling. The results obtained p-value = 0.045 smaller than the alpha value (<0. 05) it can be concluded that there is a relationship between the level of education of mothers with pregnancy in adolescence. Analysis we found the value of OR of 3.336 (95% CI 1.098 to 10.140) means, less educated mother 3.336 times risk higher to get married and pregnant at the age of adolescence. It is expected that health center, government worker and the Office of Religious Affairs (KUA) able to work together to provide better education for adolescents and prospective brides in order not to get pregnant at an early age.

Abstract

Hand hygiene is one of the important factors that determine a person's health status. Hands are easily contaminated by microbes from the environment such as bacteria, viruses, and fungi through direct contact. Hand sanitizer is a type of media that can be used to clean hands from disease-causing microbes other than soap. Hand sanitizers are widely used by the community because they are considered more practical to use. This study aims to determine the anti-fungal activity of the hand sanitizer recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO) against Candida albicans. Anti-fungal activity was tested using the well diffusion method. The results showed that the higher the concentration of the hand sanitizer, the bigger the inhibition zone formed. The statistical test results obtained a significance value of p <0.05 at the variation of the concentration of hand sanitizer 50%, 75%, 100%, and treatment control. These results indicate that there is a significant difference between the hand sanitizer treatment and control of the inhibition zone formation in C. albicans. The WHO recommended hand sanitizer has medium inhibitory power against C. albicans bacteria.

Abstract

Background Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever (DHF) is a disease transmitted through the bite of Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus that have been infected with the dengue virus. PSN DBD (DHF mosquito breeding areas elimination) is one of the most effective ways to prevent DHF. DHF is an endemic disease in Banyumas regency. This research aimed to analyze the factors that influence the behavior of PSN DHF in the East Purwokerto District, Banyumas Regency. Methods This research was quantitative research using a cross-sectional approach. The populations in this research were 17.289 households and the sample was housewives in East Purwokerto district taken by simple random sampling technique with 96 respondents. The data collection technique was carried out by using questionnaires and observation. Data analysis was conducted by univariate, bivariate, and multivariate.Results Education (p=0,129), income (p=0,170), knowledge (p=0,254), attitude (p=0,942), facilities availability (p=0,130), role of community figures (p=0,712) and role of health workers (p=0,635) showed has no significant correlation with behaviour of PSN DHF. Information media exposure (p=0,004) showed has significant correlation and the main factor of PSN DHF. Conclusions: Media exposure is the most influential variable in the behavior of PSN DHF. One of the advice given was to the health institution to should give more various ways of information related to dengue prevention in the community.

Abstract

The very rapid ageing of Singapore’s population is placing a huge burden on informal caregivers. I discuss two macroeconomic strategies – strengthening redistributive measures and professionalizing informal caregiving - that may alleviate this burden. A national study on informal caregiving is urgently required to identify specific areas and caregiver segments that will benefit from these strategies.

Abstract

Scabies is still a health problem in the world, including Indonesia. The World Health Organization (WHO) in 2017 stated that scabies is included in the Neglected Tropical Disease (NTD) which requires large-scale control. In Indonesia, according to data from the Ministry of Health Republic of Indonesia the prevalence of scabies in 2017 is 6% of the total population in Indonesia. Discussion on the incidence and prevention of scabies from various regions in Indonesia so far is still not comprehensive. This review will provide an overview related to epidemiology and preventive measures against scabies so that scabies cases in Indonesia can be controlled properly

Abstract

Indonesia has a long history of adolescent marriage and early childbearing. The religious, sociocultural and economic factors have been pointed out as the major drivers of early marriage while the 1974 Marriage Law was considered ‘weak’ in preventing the event. As the house of representative has passed the new bill in increasing the minimum legal age of marriage for female from 16 to 19 years old in 2019, a question posed whether the enactment of the new marriage law will be effective in preventing adolescent marriage in Indonesia.

Abstract

Background: Tuberculosis (TB) is reported as a world health problem, especially in developing countries. It is estimated that one third of the world's population has been infected by Mycobacterium tuberculosis. WHO has stated that tuberculosis has now become a global threat. Indonesia is one of the 27 countries in the world with MDR-TB cases. Methods: A qualitative study with an ethnography design was conducted to determine and reveal the meaning of treatment-seeking behavior in “Batu Balender” or TB patients in Buru Island, Maluku, Indonesia. The research data was collected through interviews with 15 informants from all risk groups that are directly related to TB. Observations were made to ensure the validity of the data. Results: This study revealed that from generation to generation, the Alifuru tribe believes that diseases are grouped into three categories: natural diseases, sick submissions, and ancestral curse. Indigenous people have believed that TB is an incurable ancestral curse disease. They know the "Kaygosa" who is believed to be the holder of natural medicinal plants to treat TB, such as leaves and bark. Conclusions: Alifuru tribal people who access health services to obtain Directly Observed Treatment Short-Course (DOTS) have experienced failure in treatment due to local customary rules that prohibit taking medicine if a tribal community has died and believes that a community health center or hospital is "house died". This study suggest that education and counseling for TB treatment should be optimized in efforts to improve the health of local tribal communities.

Abstract

Background: Dengue is a viral infection transmitted by mosquitoes that continue to be a significant health challenge in many tropical and subtropical countries. So far, Geographic Information System (GIS) in the health sector contributed to disease prevention, especially for visualization of the disease case. GIS is one of the important tools in spatial epidemiology to assist identification and spatial analysis of the target disease intervention. This article summarizes the use of GIS to assess risk factors for DHF, and how efficient the use of GIS in facilitating the improvement of disease surveillance systems for the prevention and control of diseases. Methods: This paper was developed using a descriptive approach, conducted in September and December 2019. The primary data used in this research were from ScienceDirect databased by collecting some studies that assess the risk of dengue using GIS applications. Results: The results of reviews of research in several countries which use GIS applications in assessing the risk of dengue incidence, ie, in Swat, Pakistan evaluated the impact of the slope, population density, and the distance to the river through GIS applications. Then in Seremban and Putrajaya, Malaysia implemented a participatory approach to identify the spatial risk of dengue in the community. Research in Lahore, Pakistan, analyzed the risk of dengue. Study in Colombia conducted GWR to evaluate the association between socioeconomic factors and the environment with dengue fever incidence. Recently, research in Taiwan integrated GIS to detect the correlation between population density and the possibility of human contact with mosquitoes. Conclusions: Based on the results of the review, it can be drawn that asses the dengue risk with GIS applications is highly relevant because it can determine the factors which affect the incidence of dengue. Besides, it can determine the spatial correlation between risk factors and the incidence of dengue, as well as to evaluate the impact of the dengue occurrence.

Abstract

Disease pandemic has shown that human health does not belong to health human resources only but beyond it. People should realize that health issues could not only be relied on the health sector but it also needs a cross-cutting stakeholders such as social scientists, economists, politicians, non-governmental organizations, mass media, private entities, mass participation etc. So, human health belongs to the participation of everyone because it comes from everyone. No one will deny it!
