The Air Pollution Standards Index (APSI) is an indicator that shows how clean or polluted the air is in a city. It also portrays the health impacts towards the people who breathe it in. Based on the Indonesian Ministry of Environment monitoring through the Air Quality Monitoring Station (AQMS), the city of Surabaya only had 22 up to 62 days of air categorized as good in a year. The purpose of this study was to forecast APSI as a scientific-based reference for making decisions and policies that were appropriate in tackling the effects of air pollution on health. This study was non-obstructive or non-reactive research. The research method used was time series to identify the time relationship. The data used were secondary data taken from the APSI documents from 2014 to 2019 at the Surabaya City Environment Agency. The results of this study obtained the best model through α (0.8), γ (0.5), and δ (0.6) with the values of MAPE (0.104355), MAD (0.00842), and MSD (0.001050) calculated with the Holt-Winters exponential smoothing method. The highest produced forecast value of APSI was in September 2020, and the smallest was in January 2020. This study suggests the government of Surabaya to create policies and programs to suppress the number within APSI.

The rapid increase of population growth yearly is a problem that Indonesia generally faces. Various efforts to resolve this problem have been done by the government, one of which is the Family Planning Program and strategies for the use of contraception. Intra-Uterine Device (IUD) is one contraception type that remains unpopular, with only 6.6% of users in 2018. One of the factors assumed to affect the contraceptive use is spouse support. The aim of this study was to analyze and then summarize the findings on the correlation between husband support and the use of IUD in women of childbearing age. Ten studies with certain criterias that had been selected from various databases were used in the meta-analysis. The data were analyzed with the Comprehensive Meta-Analysis 2 trial version. Based on the analysis, husband support was a factor correlated with the use of IUDs in women of childbearing age (p = 0.000).

The incidence of unmet needs in Indonesia is still high, around 10.6 percent. For every 36 million couples of childbearing age, there are 4 million couples who experience unmet needs. The high number of unmet needs will trigger various effects on women of childbearing age. One of the impacts is unwanted pregnancy. This unwanted pregnancy can be a factor in morbidity and mortality in the mother, increasing maternal mortality if not addressed promptly. This study is an observational non-reactive study. This study aimed to determine the factors related to the unmet need for family planning in married women. The study subjects were 29,189 married women aged 15-49 years old (women of childbearing age). The data source comes from the Indonesian Demographic and Health Survey (IDHS) in 2017. Further analysis was carried out using the chi-square test and multiple logistic regression. The results show that the factors affecting the unmet need for family planning in women are the age of women, the number of children who are still alive, family planning discussions between spouses or husband and wife, education level, employment status, knowledge related to methods, and history of family planning use. The variable of family planning usage history is the most influential factor in the unmet need for family planning in pregnant women. Women who have never done birth control have a high risk of unmet need—women's knowledge about contraceptive methods related to the contraceptive method and the history of using family planning (p-value <0.05). The variable of family planning usage history is the most influential factor in the unmet need for family planning in pregnant women. Women who have never done birth control have a high risk of unmet need—knowledge related to family planning methods and history (p-value <0.05). The variable of family planning usage history is the most influential factor in the unmet need for family planning in pregnant women. Women who have never done birth control have a high risk of unmet need.

Diphtheria is an acute disease that attacks the airways and causes deaths. The risk factors for diphtheria are low Diphtheria-Pertussis-Tetanus (DPT) immunization coverage and an unhealthy home environment. One effort to control diphtheria is by providing information in the form of the patient's location that makes it easier to determine the target group of people intervened. The city of Surabaya experienced an increase of 50 diphtheria cases from 2017 to 2018. This study aimed to map and analyze diphtheria cases based on DPT immunization and healthy homes from 2017 to 2018 in the city of Surabaya. This study was classified descriptive analytic and used an ecological design. This study used the Pearson's correlation coefficient statistical test to analyze secondary data from the Surabaya City’s Health Profile of 2017 to 2018. This study employed the Health Mapper 22.214.171.124 application and SPSS software version 23. The study variables were diphtheria cases, DPT immunization coverage, and the percentage of healthy homes in 2017 and 2018 in Surabaya. The results of the statistical test indicated that there was a moderate relationship between DPT basic immunization coupon with the number of diphtheria cases in 2018 (p = 0.007; OR = 0.471); while the percentage of healthy homes and the number of diphtheria cases in 2018 showed a strong correlation (p = 0.002; OR = 0.544). The city experienced an increase in the number of diphtheria cases from 2017 to 2018, as well as the rise in DPT immunization coverage and the percentage of healthy homes, which tended to be stagnant. DPT immunization coverage and the percentage of healthy homes based on the 2018 data were related to the number of diphtheria cases in Surabaya. Counseling for the people in the city should be conducted to ensure that their children get DPT immunization and maintain environment cleanliness for a healthy home.

Premarital sex is a growing social issue in Indonesia. The number of adolescents who conduct premarital sex has increased over the years. This study aimed to analyze the determinants of premarital sex behavior among adolescents in Indonesia. The study used secondary data from the 2017 Indonesian Demographic Health Survey (IDHS) with a total of 22,583 adolescent participants. The chi-square and multiple logistic regression were performed to assess the association of premarital sex behavior with socio-demographic status, tobacco, alcohol, and drug use. The results revealed that premarital sex was associated with sex, age, education level, smoking status, alcohol consumption, and drug use. Adolescents who had drunk alcohol were almost twenty times more likely (AOR = 19,888; 95% CI = 16,124-24,531) to have premarital sexual intercourse compared to adolescents who had not. The results found that premarital sex was strongly correlated with addictive substance use. Therefore, the government should formulate integrated health intervention programs to prevent risky health behaviors among adolescents. These can include integrating education on the dangers of smoking, alcohol consumption, and drugs into the Generation Planning or Generasi Berencana (GENRE) program, or Pusat Informasi dan Konseling Remaja (PIK R) or Youth Information and Counseling Center, which focuses on reproductive health in one package.

The pregnancy intention can be divided into two, namely the desired pregnancy and unwanted pregnancy/Kehamilan Tidak Diinginkan (KTD). Unwanted pregnancy can cause negative impacts on the mother, such as not carrying out antenatal care (ANC) and abortion. Besides, babies born from KTD are more at risk of experiencing low birth weight and not getting breast milk/Air Susu Ibu (ASI) from their mothers. Therefore, the risk factors of pregnancy intention need to be known to prevent the incidence of KTD in Indonesia. This study analyzes the risk factors for pregnancy intention in Indonesia, such as maternal age, parity, sex of the baby born, mother's work status, education level, type of area of residence, family economy, and history of contraceptive use or family planning/Keluarga Berencana (KB). The research design was cross-sectional with analysis using logistic regression statistical tests. This study used secondary data from the 2017 Demographic Health Survey (DHS) with 14,778 subjects. The results of this analysis are the risk factors for pregnancy intention in Indonesia, namely the age of the mother (p-value = 0,000 and OR = 1.403), parity (p-value = 0,000 and OR = 2,860), the type of area of residence (p-value = 0,000 and OR = 1,518) and history of use of family planning (p-value = 0.000 and OR = 0.711). The risk of adverse events is greater in mothers aged 35 years, parity more than 3, residing in urban areas, and having a history of using family planning. There is no significant relationship between the sex of the baby, the mother's employment status, education level, and family economy on pregnancy intention.

Child survival can be reflected in the presence of the Infant Mortality Rate (IMR). Indonesia has an Infant Mortality Rate (IMR) according to the 2017 IDHS, which reaches 24 deaths per 1000 live births. This figure has decreased compared to a survey conducted by the 2012 IDHS, where infant mortality reached 32 deaths per 1000 live births. Even though it experienced a decrease, the IMR in Indonesia was higher when compared to the IMR in other Southeast Asian countries. Socioeconomic factors for individuals, families, and communities, including the influence of infant mortality. Not only that, but infant mortality can also be due to the absence of awareness of maternal health. Thus, this study aims to determine several variables related to survival in infants in Indonesia. This type of research is a non-reactive study. This study uses quantitative analysis and a methodical approach with a cross-sectional approach that takes data from the 2017 IDHS. This study took a sample following the 2017 IDHS with the criteria that mothers who had babies still drank breast milk, were born single, and were still alive after the first three days in Indonesia. The number of respondents in this study was 7,599 mothers with babies. Analysis of the research data using Chi-Square analysis. Bivariable analysis shows that infants' survival has a relationship with the mother's education, type of area, and welfare level. However, infant survival also has no association with the age of the mother and birth attendants. Counseling pregnant women regarding risks, causes,

Indonesia is currently taking on the challenge of the relatively high number of neonatal deaths influencing maternal and child health. Premature birth is the most significant contributor to the number of neonatal deaths. The occurrence of premature birth is motivated by various risk factors. Knowing the magnitude of the relationship between several risks, namely maternal age, location, parity, and maternal smoking habits with preterm birth incidents was the aim of this study. The 2017 Indonesian Demographic and Health Survey (IDHS) was a source of data used. This study employed a cross-sectional approach and then processed the results with univariate and bivariate tests. The results showed a relationship between maternal age and residential area with the premature birth, where mothers under 20 years and over 35 years had a higher probability of giving birth prematurely. The area of residence, which was divided into rural and urban, also had a relationship with premature birth. The parity and smoking habits showed no association with preterm birth. Education, Antenatal Care (ANC), and other various efforts to emphasize maternal and child health care during pregnancy need to be continuously improved to reduce preterm birth rates in Indonesia.
