Traditional Health Services as a Means of Healthcare Service Development

  • Dwi Rochmat Aryanto, Lilik Pudjiastuti


Traditional health services have been integrated within the community to overcome various health problems. Although the service is often considered as an alternative treatment, but in practice it cannot be denied that traditional health care is a treatment that has been around for quite a long time and is believed to be beneficial. However, it is known that there are no binding standards or rules regarding this treatment. Therefore this study aims to analyze traditional health as a means of healthcare development. This research is normative juridical, i.e. by explaining and describing a matter which is sourced from legal provisions through a conceptual  and statute approach. The results showed that the instruments related to Traditional Health Services were actually in accordance with the laws and regulations of the government. On the other hand, the government is trying to provide a legal umbrella as a means of legal protection for traditional health services through legislation related to health services. Thus it can be concluded that the implementation related to law enforcement and traditional health service standards has sought to be presented to provide space for this treatment so that it can continue to develop in the community.
