Abstract

National Socio-Economic Survey (SUSENAS) 1998 had identified the choice of drug and drug dispensing facilities for infant and children with diarrhoea in the previous month before the survey. In line with the new health development paradigm, which gives priority in promotive and preventive measure, the information from SUSENAS 1998 could give a useful suggestion for a community health education program in appropriate treatment of diarrhoea. Seventy six point two percent of mothers took their diarrhoeal children to health provider private practice. Thirty one point nine percent diarrhea children did not go for outpatient treatment and 46.6 percent did self-treatment. Almost one third (29 percent) of mother chose puskesmas as the health care facility, 16,7 percent chose paramedic’s private practice and 12,2 percent chose doctor’s private practice. The puskesmas have a greater role in rural area and outside Java Bali, while doctor’s private practice has a great role in urban area and Java Bali. For mothers who used unprescribed drugs, most of them used modern medicine (80,8 percent) and 25,8 percent used traditional medicine. Half of the mothers bought the diarrhoeal drug from stall and 7,7 percent bought from traveling salesmen. Nineteen point two percent of mothers bought the drug from pharmacy. The use of modern medicine was more prominent in urban area, well-developed area and Java Bali, whereas the use of traditional medicine was more prominent in rural area; under develop area, and outer Java Bali. Mother with high education level prefers to go to doctor or if they did a self-medication, they tended to choose modern medicine. Mothers with low education level prefer to go to puskesmas or paramedic’s private practice and use traditional medicine if their children were suffered from diarrheoa. Drug store and stall could be considered as a partner for promotive measure in giving diarrhoeal health education to the community.
