The similarity of identity such as religion and ethnicity as a primordial aspect becomes a preference in choosing a leader not based on their capability. In the election of the Governor of North Sumatra in 2018, identity politics tended to strengthen in Muslim voters, especially in terms of religion, indigenous issues and natives. This practics of identity politics resulted in a victory for the couple Edy Rahmayadi-Musa Rajeckshah (Islam-Islam). The main question in this study is why identity politics is still relevant to be used by Muslim voters in the Election of Governor of North Sumatra in 2018. The study was conducted with a qualitative descriptive method, in which all data were collected through library studies and internet searching. This study concludes that Muslim voters see identity politics still relevant to use in choosing leaders because they consider Muslims have to be led by leaders who care about Islam. This understanding emerged from previous experiences in DKI Jakarta, namely the Al Maidah 51 incident by Ahok and discriminatory practices against Muslims when led by the non-Muslims and the Muslims who did not care about Islam in various regions in Indonesia

This article based on research that tries to trace cancer patients who do not want to go to the hospital. Often we hear cancer patients come to the hospital when the condition of the disease is already at an advanced stage. So it's too late to handle. According to data from the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Indonesia, if cancer is treated early it can prevent more than 30 percent death. This study aims to determine the problem of cancer patients' reluctance to go to the hospital in terms of socio-cultural aspects. The method used in this research is a qualitative method. Data collected by observation and in-depth interview techniques. The results showed that the reluctance of cancer patients to go to the hospital was influenced by socio-cultural aspects so it was crucial to determine the choice of treatment for cancer patients. The socio-cultural aspects are cultural knowledge about cancer, belief in traditional medicine, and the influence of relatives and other social environments such as friends and neighbors in health care choices. Relatives, neighbors, and friends recommend traditional treatment. However, with traditional medicine, there are no informants who have recovered from their illnesses. There is actually a disease that is getting worse.

HIV epidemic in Indonesia has been last for three decades and the members of the community have participated in the prevention and intervention. Warga Peduli AIDS (WPA) is an action by a group of local residents in Bandung City who concerned about HIV and AIDS. This action has been one of examples of community participation in responding to the epidemic. The action includes participation in meetings held by NGOs and city government to discuss prevention at the community level, dissemination of information about epidemic preventions; and providing social support for people living with HIV and AIDS. This study aims at describing motives that drive the WPA activist (better known as WPA Kader) to carry out an action, and how they view the meaning of their action. This study was conducted in a qualitative approach using an ethnographic model. This study finds that WPA Kader derived their motive of action from religious and cultural values, and their action is a combination of altruism and self-interest to pursue their personal spiritual satisfaction. In line with this motive, they view their action as part of their religious and cultural expression; instead of merely a community-based action to respond to a timely health issue.
