Analysis of integrated health referral systems in the era of regional autonomy in West Sulawesi

According to WHO, Indonesia is committed to end the epidemics of AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria and neglected tropical diseases and combat hepatitis, water-borne diseases and other communicable diseases by 2030. Emerging and re-emerging communicable diseases place immense strain on health systems, so concerted efforts are required to respond rapidly to urgent needs and to strengthen the development of effective disease control programmes including zoonotic diseases. It has been realized that while emphasizing improved access to services, equal attention also needs to be given to ensure quality, comprehensive and integrated health services for women, children and adolescents. Nutrition, a critical common factor in both mortality and morbidity, remains a key public health problem; further triggered by inadequate food safety and quality. Public health risks posed by tobacco, unhealthy diets, lack of physical activity, unsafe water, inadequate sanitation, traffic congestion, and use of solid fuels for cooking place further demands on the need for integrated health promotion and healthy settings.

The region of Mamuju in West Sulawesi, has worked on the integration of health services given its particularities.This research was conducted to find out and analyze the integrated health referral system in the era or region autonomy in Mamuju Regency, West Sulawesi Province.
