One of the problems that was issued by the Indonesian people was the problem health in school-age children. The number of people who are important in the community, given the sizeable amount of 23% or one third of the population of Indonesia (Private, 2003 in Prasetyo, 2014). Various health problems are still commonly found. Risk behavior undertaken by teenagers or groups of school-age children is smoking (18.3%), lack of physical activity (35.4%), consuming less vegetables (95%), not brushing their teeth (92.3%), and not washing their hands properly (80%). These health problems will generally oppose the achievement of children, a joint effort is needed to overcome these problems. One of them is by developing health care facilities in schools consisting of School Health Enterprises (UKS). According to the Indonesian Ministry of Health (2017) UKS is a government program to improve health services, health education, and fostering a healthy school environment or the ability to live a healthy life for school residents. The UKS program is expected to promote harmonious and optimal growth and development of children, so that they become quality human resources. Implementation of the UKS policy on approval is still constrained by various discussions.
The Ministry of Health (2015) states that there are a number of obstacles in implementing UKS that have been approved. There are still many coaches for UKS that have not been drilled. Little doctor is one form of empowerment which is the basic strategy of health promotion and school PHBS. Health training and counseling is delivered to small doctors who are scheduled in accordance with the expectations that the small doctors will become aware of health information. After knowing it is expected that the small doctor will convey the information obtained to other students.
The purpose of holding a small doctor is to increase the participation of students in the School Health Efforts Program (UKS) and so that students can be a driver of healthy living in school, at home, and the environment, so that students can help themselves, friends, family and the environment (Sumijatun, 2005 ). Therefore, SCOPH UNIMAL saw this problem and was present in a project called “UKDI (UKS DOKTER KECIL)”.
The focus of this project is to form a cadre of small doctors who are aware of and understand the importance of environmental and self-health. And the formation of small doctors can be a basic strategy for health promotion in the school environment. And educating students at SD N 03 Muara Dua Lhokseumawe about maintaining personal and environmental health.
The first intervention was carried out on 2 May 2019 where the theme we discussed was about environmental and self-health. Submission of material on the theme was also accompanied by a simulation of how to wash hands 6 steps according to WHO. For the target community that we educated 20 people were consisting of students in grades 4 and 5 to elementary school.
The activity starts from the implementation of the pre-test which is directly continued to the delivery of material by CIMSA trainers and also by teaching doctors at FK Unimal. Followed by a post-test and ended with ice breaking and consumption and surprise section to the game winners and those who actively asked questions and those who answered and those who could conclude.
The students were also very enthusiastic about participating in this activity. This activity has a lot of impact both for us Scoph members and students of SD N 03 Muara Dua Lhokseumawe. For us, this has become an experience to be able to interact and communicate with various groups, especially children whose age is far below us. The students were very enthusiastic and we all had fun together.
