Background: According World Health
Organization (WHO), the number of elderly people in the
population is experiencing rapid development, especially
in Southeast Asian countries. Indonesia as a Southeast
Asian country has a significant increase in the number of
elderly resulting in an increase in the quality of health
which has an impact on increasing life expectancy.
Globally, the population aged 65 years or more increased
from 6 percent in 1990 to 9 percent in 2019. The elderly
population in Indonesia based on the 2018 Riskesdas is
projected to be 27.08 million people or 9.99% of the total
population in Indonesia. The elderly population and very
fast growth also cause various problems, so that the
elderly need to get serious attention from all sectors for
efforts to improve the welfare of the elderly.

Integrated Service Post heads and health cadres spread
across 13 East Indonesian Provinces. The number of
heads of health facilities is 4,950 respondents. Data
analysis in this study used chi-square test analysis with
pvalue: <0.05) with Stata software version 12. The
independent variable in this study was the availability of
equipment (pls_d1-IFLS-5) while the dependent variable
was the availability of Integrated Service Post services
Result: The results show that statistically using the chi-
square test, the p-value = 0.0010 <0.05 is obtained because
the ρ value is less than 0.05, then H1 is accepted and Ho is
rejected, which means there is a relationship between
equipment availability and Availability of health services
Integrated service post for the elderly in Indonesia.
Conclusion: The conclusion in this study is that there is a
relationship between the availability of equipment and
the availability of health services at the Integrated
