Health Needs Assessment for Health Promotion in an Indonesian District of West Java Mayumi Mizutani1), Junko Tashiro2), Maftuhah3) 英文抄録  Purpose:To describe and assess the health needs in a district of West Java, as perceived by selected health professionals in the district in order to explore a strategy for strengthening community health and nursing of the district for health promotion.  Methods:Case study design was used. Data regarding health needs of the district were collected guided by the Precede−Proceed Model through interviews and documents and assessed. Seven participants from the district health office, a district hospital, a nursing school, and a health centre were interviewed. Documents on the websites of the Indonesian Ministry of Health, West Java provincial health office, a district office, and a district health office, and organizational records of the district health office and a nursing school were reviewed.  Results:District health needs were derived from multiple aspects:epidemiological, educational and ecological, and administrative and policy. Epidemiological aspects:remaining needs of maternal and child health;low access to sanitation;increasing noncommunicable diseases(NCDs) ;increasing HIV/AIDS and related environment factors were demographic changes due to increased life expectancy;economy supported by oil industry revenue;increased mobility of workers and weak sanitary systems. Educational and ecological aspects:insufficient functioning of referral system;limited human resources for health promotion;and limited health−sector budget. Administrative and policy aspects:majority of nurses had minimal level nursing education and minimal community nursing education;existing district health strategy for maternal and child health, sanitation, HIV/AIDS, and NCDs;and limited focus on NCDs for role description of community nurse.  Conclusion:Major health needs were identified in maternal and child health, sanitation, HIV/AIDS, and NCDs, insufficient referral system, limited human resources for health promotion, and limited health− sector budget. This study concludes that a local government should address these complicated health needs in order to promote health of people. It is also recommended that a local government should provide continuous education for community nurses to strengthen their collaborative skills with the community for promoting healthy−lifestyle behaviors, and capacity for surveillance of high−risk individuals and follow−up.

Health centers and the health district need to educate community nurses in order to improve and maximize their capacity to collaborate with community people.  To address the insufficient functioning of the referral system, it is necessary to activate the role of community nurses. Their capacity for case−finding of high−risk people in the community, follow−up of high−risk people, and referring patients whenever necessary should be strengthened.  Even with the limited budget it should be allocated appropriately to support implementation of preventive and promotive health care. In order to do so, further studies are needed to support the study findings to encourage policy makers in recognizing the health needs in the district.

3.Strength and limitations

 The strength of this study was that it provided information from the perspectives of health professionals on the health needs of the community in a district of West Java in Indonesia from the perspective of health promotion.  However, the study was limited in that data were gathered only from health professionals. Further study is needed to include participants’perspectives from the people who receive healthcare in order to understand public’s perceived needs and priorities. In addition, there was the usual caution regarding researcher bias in interpreting the data due to the language barrier. The collaboration process with the Indonesian researcher served to minimize researcher bias. Acknowledgements  To each participant who was interviewed, thank you for sharing the fruitful information.
