Background: Mortality rate is one of indicators and
representations of welfare of an area. In order to solve high
mortality rate problem, the government of Daerah Istimewa
Yogyakarta (DIY), including District of Sleman, is carrying out
the policy of alert village.
Method: The study used literature review based on
references and field data which were issued by Health Office.
Result: The policy of alert village has less positive impact in
decreasing maternal mortality rate and neonatal mortality rate,
because health assurance scheme still does not meet the
needs of the people, both physical and non-physical. The
degree of health still has not improved significantly. The policy
of alert village needs inter-sectoral financial support. Financial
allocation is still mistargeting. People needs vary from one
village to another, so it is necessary to have competent and
smart health workers as the implementing agents of Health
Department. The policy of alert village is still not able to satisfy
all stakeholders (government, health workers, and people),
because the concept of satisfaction is closely related to the
principle of justice.
Conclusion: The policy of alert village is an effort to empower
the people to be independent in overcoming their health
problems. But, in District of Sleman the policy of alert village is
classified into unsuccessfull policy. This failure is caused by
insufficiet support in implementating the policy.
