BACKGROUND: The mortality rate for infants and toddlers aged 12–59 months in Yogyakarta has shown a fluctuating trend between 2008 and 2014. To reduce infant and toddler mortality rates, the Yogyakarta city government has made some efforts to implement integrated management of children illness (IMCI). Thus, it can be said that one of the successful actions of the government in reducing mortality and morbidity of infants and toddlers is determined by optimizing the role of IMCI in the primary health community (PHC) as the vanguard in public health services. The results of the preliminary study found that all PHCs in the cities of Bantul and Yogyakarta had implemented IMCI, although there were no data related to how the inputs, processes, and outputs in the implementation of the IMCI were.

AIM: This study aims to determine the implementation of IMCI related to its inputs, processes, and outputs at PHC in Bantul and Yogyakarta City.

METHODS: This research method used descriptive research.

RESULTS: Based on previous study results, in 2019, the average health center had fulfilled the “output” activities regarding 60% of toddler visits carrying out IMCI.

CONCLUSION: It indicated that some health centers had implemented the IMCI program optimally.
