KANIGARAN – Sebagai upaya meningkatkan derajat kesehatan masyarakat maka diperlukan pembinaan dan evaluasi pelaksanaan posyandu. Pokja IV Tim Penggerak PKK Kota Probolinggo punya kewajiban membantu kinerja posyandu sehingga program pokok PPK dapat berjalan dengan baik.

“Bekerja sama dengan pihak terkait yang telah berlangsung dapat dirasakan sampai ke tingkat kelurahan, khususnya pelayanan kesehatan. Langkah nyata program kesehatan dan pokja IV dilihat dari kesadaran masyarakat memeriksaan kesehatan anak ke posyandu,” jelas Ketua TP PKK Kota Probolinggo Aminah Hadi Zainal Abidin, saat bertandang ke posyandu di Kelurahan Kebonsari Wetan, Rabu (24/7) siang.

Posyandu, menurut Aminah, harus berkiprah secara maksimal untuk meningkatkan derajat kesehatan. “Kami harapkan masukan terkait kendala pelaksanaan posyandu sehingga dapat meningkatkan kesehatan masyarakat,” imbuhnya.

Posyandu di RW 2 Kelurahan Kebonsari Wetan itu memiliki sasaran 71 balita, sedangkan angka pemeriksaan anak mencapai 80 persen. Hadir di posyandu itu bersama Wakil Ketua Diah Kristanti Soufis Subri dan Wakil Ketua Tri Wahyuni Bambang Agus, Aminah meminta kader atau masyarakat dapat menyampaikan kepada dirinya terkait pelayanan kesehatan di kawasan tersebut.

Seorang kader posyandu tidak ingin melewatkan kesempatan itu. Ia meminta meja, kursi dan tenda untuk posyandu. “Karena disini panas Bu, jadi butuh tenda kalau posyandu. Selain itu juga seragam,” ujar kader tersebut.

Menanggapi pertanyaan itu, Aminah pun mengaku akan merima masukan yang disampaikan. “Insyaallah akan kami perhatikan,” jawab ibu dengan tiga orang anak ini.

Pengurus PKK Pokja IV, Nyamiati menambahkan, posyandu konsepnya adalah dari masyarakat oleh masyarakat dan untuk masyarakat. “Saya sarankan kebutuhan posyandu bisa disampaikan saat musrenbang kelurahan untuk diakomodir melalui dana kelurahan,” tuturnya.

Sementara itu, Ketua RT Ghofur mengharapkan adanya sosialisasi kesehatan tentang penanganan gizi pada anak-anak. Selain itu, ada sosialisasi bagaimana ibu hamil memeriksakan kesehatannya di fasilitas kesehatan.

Karena letak pukesmas Kanigaran yang agak jauh, maka ibu hamil atau masyarakat dapat memeriksakan kesehatan di puskesmas pembantu (pustu) Jrebeng Lor.

Kata Nyamiati, yang perlu diperhatikan oleh ibu hamil adalah selalu memeriksakan kehamilan untuk mengetahui perkembangan janin, merencanakan akan melahirkan dimana, merencanakan naik apa ke tempat ia melahirkan. Para RT bisa bisa berkirim surat ke puskesmas jika ingin mendapatkan sosialisasi kesehatan pada warganya. Selain itu, masyarakat juga harus punya kesadaran memeriksakan kondisinya ke puskesmas terdekat.

Tidak hanya memberikan pembinaan, Ketua TP PKK Aminah juga memberikan pertanyaan dan membagikan hadiah untuk warga. Aminah pun ikut menimbang dan mengukur tinggi balita yang datang ke posyandu. Paket bantuan makanan tambahan (BMT) juga dibagikan oleh Aminah. (famydecta/humas)

As an effort to increase the people’s health, guidance and evaluation of posyandu (integrated health service posts) implementation are required. The working group (pokja) IV of Probolinggo city’s Family Welfare Movement (PKK) has to assist the performance of posyandu so that the main program of PKK could run well.

“Collaboration made with the related sides has brought a positive effect to the urban-village level, especially in the health service sector. The real step of health program and working group IV can be seen by the rate of people checking their children’s health to posyandu,” the Chairman of Probolinggo city’s PKK, Aminah Hadi Zainal Abidin said while visiting posyandu at Kebonsari Wetan urban village, Wednesday (24/7).

Posyandu, according to Aminah, should operate maximally to increase people’s health. “We’re looking for any suggestions or ideas related to the challenges in posyandu implementation to increase the people’s health,” she added.

The posyandu located at the RW 2, Kebonsari Wetan urban village has a target of 71 toddlers with the rate of children having medical examination has reached 80%. Visiting the posyandu with the vice-chairman Diah Kristanti Soufis Subri and Tri Wahyuni Bambang Agus, Aminah asked the posyandu cadres and the people to make any report on health service in the area.

A posyandu cadre used the opportunity to ask for a desk and a tent for the posyandu. “It’s quite hot here so we need a tent for the posyandu, and a uniform as well,” the cadre said.

Responding to the demand, Aminah said she will consider the suggestion. “God willing, we will consider that,” answered the woman who has 3 children.

The caretaker of working group IV, Nyamiati added, posyandu has a concept ‘from the people for the people’. “I suggest that any demands made by the cadres should be submitted through the musrenbang (development planning forum) at the urban village level so that it would be facilitated by the urban village budget,” she said.

Meanwhile, the head of the neighborhood (RT), Ghofur expects dissemination on nutrition care for children to be held. Besides, there should be another dissemination on how pregnant mothers checking their health in any health facility.

Since the location of Kanigaran puskesmas (urban-village health facility) is quite far, then pregnant mothers or people can do health checking in an auxiliary health center of Jrebeng Lor urban village.

Nyamiati said things need to be noticed by pregnant mothers is to routinely check the pregnancy to find out the embryo growth, to plan where to give birth, or how to go to the location of giving birth. The neighborhood heads can send the puskesmas a letter to have dissemination on health. Besides, people should have an awareness to check their health to the nearest puskesmas.

Apart from giving guidance, the Chairman of PKK Aminah has also delivered some questions to the people and given them prizes. She also joined the posyandu caretakers in weighing and measuring the height of the toddlers coming to the posyandu. She also disbursed packages of nutritious food to the people.
