Public health has an important role in efforts to improve the quality of human resources, poverty alleviation and economic development. The Human Development Index puts health as one of the main components of measurement besides education and income. The general condition of health in Indonesia is built by environmental factors, behavior and health services. Meanwhile, health services consist of several components, namely the availability and quality of health service facilities, medicines and medical supplies, health personnel, health financing and management. Basic health service facilities, namely Puskesmas strengthened by Auxiliary Puskesmas and Mobile Puskesmas, have been established in almost all regions of Indonesia, however equitable distribution and affordability of health services is still an obstacle.
