Abstract
The objective of this study is to analyze the policies of Brebes Regency Government in reducing maternal mortality in 2017. As in 2017 (as many as 31 cases) Brebes Regency government was able to reduce maternal mortality compared to 2016 (54 cases) and 2015 (52 cases). The research used was a qualitative research method with data collection techniques from primary data and secondary data. Data collection was conducted by interviewing several informants, including: Health Office, Regional Development Research Planning Agency, Community Collaboration and Prosperity for Welfare (Kolaborasi dan Pelayanan untuk Kesejahteraan/KOMPAK), Civic Forum (Forum Masyarakat Madani/FMM) and the community in Brebes Regency. The data analysis method used was a triangulation method that aimed to validate the data found in research or based on theoretical studies. The decline in maternal mortality rates in Brebes Regency in 2017 was inseparable from the policies of Brebes Regency government and the involvement of several parties. The policies of Brebes Regency government in reducing maternal mortality included making a policy of “Maklumat Dukun Bayi”, a joint movement “Kawal Wong Metheng”, and a KOMPAK partnership in educating pregnant women to give birth in health services. The policy of “Maklumat Dukun Bayi” is a form of partnership between health workers and traditional midwife, midwife did not assist in childbirth but help plan births and prevent complications, help pregnant women with high risk to health workers and help care for mothers and babies after childbirth. The form of “Kawal Wong Metheng” policy was carried out by the community by allocating village budget and community voluntary donations to guard pregnant women. While the KOMPAK program was carried out by inviting the community to give birth at the Health Centers and will get a direct birth certificate and for free.
