Abstract

Drug availability is a critical factor in ensuring rationality of drug use. In addition, availability is essential since drugs are part of the link between patients and healthcare. Drugs save lives, improve public health and drive trust and public participation in healthcare services. Issue of drug availability, especially for chronic disease drugs such as anti-hypertensives, is often found in healthcare at Community (Puskesmas). Considering that a Community Health Center is a First-Level Healthcare Provider (PPK I) in National Health Insurance (JKN) era, lack of drugs is a distinct problem in terms of guaranteeing the success of therapy, especially for chronic disease patients, such as with hypertension. A design of the observational study was applied to 20 Centers in Pamekasan Regency to determine the Drug Requirement Plan for anti-hypertensive drugs at Health Centers related to their availability. The results showed that the on aspects plan analysis system and requirement quantification, Drug Requirement Plan had a relationship with availability of anti-hypertensive drugs with a p-value of 0.0006 each, while planning time was not significantly related to the drug availability. It was suggested that the medication management at Community Health Centers is performed by health workers who have competence and authority, namely pharmacists
