Abstract: Background: Indonesia is a republic in Southeast Asia, consisting of approximately 13 600 islands and is the home for 239 million inhabitants. The country was governed by a dictator but has since 1998 had democratic elections. The majority of the population, 88 percentages, are Muslims which makes the country the largest Muslim nation in the world. The structure of the health system in Indonesia is built on districts with sub-districts which are supported by sub-centres. Problem: The health care is improving and more women are attended by professional health care workers when giving birth, despite this child birth still is a common problem. Yet there is a lack of human resources which contributes to the problem. Since the children are the future of Indonesia it is important that the health development policy is adequate and that it has a great compliance in order for the children to stay healthy. Aim: The aim of the study was to describe nurses/midwives work with health promoting education to parents to prevent ill-health among children in the district of Yogyakarta, Indonesia. Method: The method that has been used for the seven interviews is a qualitative content analysis. The interviews were carried out in the Dr. Sardjito Central General Hospital in Yogyakarta and in Puskesmas NGAWEN, Gungng Kidul district, Yogyakarta Province and Puskesmas Mlati II, Sleman district which are placed in the rural areas of Yogyakarta. Result: The result shows that there is a constant work with increasing the knowledge level among nurses and health workers on grassroots level in the district of Yogyakarta, to prevent ill-health among the children. Regarding the health promoting education a crucial finding was made that revealed the most common reason why parents did not apply the health implications that they received, was related to culture and tradition. Positively, there is a great will among health workers and nurses to learn more and increase the health level among the children. Nurses and midwives in the hospital had to rely on their experience when educating the parents while the nurses and midwives working in the puskesmas used the Mother and Child health handbook as a guideline. Discussion: To increase the chance of implementation among the families the health promoting education has to include culture and socioeconomic factors.
