Abstract

Surabaya City has the potential for an earthquake of 6.5 SR. Based on the previous research, the level of emergency health infrastructure readiness in Surabaya City is 0-34%. It was reported that due to the unpreparedness of the health infrastructure during the Lombok Earthquake (2018), 1,477 injured victims did not get proper treatment. Therefore, this research is aimed to formulate the concept of providing emergency health infrastructure to reduce the earthquake risk. This research is qualitative research type with two methods of analysis, particularly content analysis and triangulation. Content analysis was utilized to identify criteria for providing emergency health infrastructure. Meanwhile, triangulation was utilized to formulate the concept of providing emergency health infrastructure. The results of this study are 32 criteria in the provision of emergency health infrastructure. From these criteria, the concept of providing emergency health infrastructure was formed, divided into three disaster phases: 1) Mitigation, 2) Preparedness, and 3) Response. In the mitigation phase, the concept focuses on procuring medical supplies, increasing the competence of health workers, and mapping potential emergency care at the disaster site. In the preparedness phase, the concept focuses on cross-sectoral coordination for activating the emergency care unit in a disaster site, synchronizing the availability of medical equipment, and establishing a health team. Meanwhile, in the emergency response phase, the concept focuses on mobilizing the required medical equipment and health workers, also optimizing health services based on health standards.
