Abstract

The usage of natural medicines has been common among mothers who want to maintain their children health. Previous studies have shown that despite having poor knowledge, mothers have a positive attitude towards the use of natural medicines. This study investigated knowledge, attitudes and practice of natural medicines usage among mothers of toddlers in Surabaya. A survey was conducted with purposively selected mothers of toddlers who were members of “Posyandu balita” from five randomly selected “Puskesmas” in Surabaya. A total of 116 mothers completed a self-administered questionnaire. About half of respondents (n=59) reported providing natural medicines for their toddlers to relieve fever or cough,to increase appetite or as immunity booster. Almost all of 59 respondents provided traditionallymade natural medicine either homemade by themselves or by sellers. Respondents had poor knowledge about types of natural medicine products available in Indonesia, but their knowledge about safety issue of natural medicines usage was regarded sufficient.Respondents’ attitude towards natural medicines was positive, the majority agreed with statements: “traditional medicine is safe due to its nature” (n=87, 75%), “natural medicines are safer than modern medicines” (n=86, 74.1%), and “natural medicines have side effects” (n=80, 69%). In conclusion, traditionally-made natural medicines remain popular despite the availability of natural medicine products, leading to having poor product knowledge.Although attitude towards natural medicines was found positive, knowlegde related to some issue about their safety needs to be improved to avoid undesired effects.
