Risk Factors of Malaria Incidence on Pregnant Women in Public Health Center (Puskesmas) Kalumata Work Area Ternate City
Malaria is one of the public health problems that can cause death, especially in high risk groups of infants, children under five and pregnant women. Pregnant women who suffer from malaria are at risk of abortion, born to death, premature birth, low birth weight and congenital malaria. The disease is still endemic in most parts of Indonesia including North Maluku. The purpose of this research is to know the maternal risk factors, the number of births, night outside activities, the use of insecticide-treated mosquito nets and compliance ANC with malaria incidence in pregnant women. The method used in this study is descriptive analytic with a cross sectional-approach. Results of RDT test was known that none of the respondents were positive for malaria, but there were 19 respondents (57.6 %) who had malarial pain. The value of all variables studied showed a number is higher than 0.05, so the results of this study provide an answer to us that the incidence of malaria in pregnant women does not have a strong correlation with age factor, the number of children, the habit of night outside activities, the use of mosquito nets, and compliance in pregnancy test (ANC). The malaria incidence in pregnant women, more due to Ternate is one of malaria endemic area in North Maluku, so the condition of the prime body during pregnancy, is highly recommended.
