Meanwhile, quantitative data were collected through questionnaire survey, and data analysis was performed using the triangulation method.

In Dayak societies, injections are the contraceptive form most required and used by people in the local community (30.21%). Furthermore, there is a significant correlation between need and use of contraceptives (Sig. = 0.000). The demand for contraceptives is based on the remaining stock at the health center, as well as the community’s request. During the acceptance process, the quality, quantity, and type of contraceptives are checked, and counseling is provided, especially for new acceptors. Meanwhile, the suitability of the contraceptive storage conditions at the health center was discovered to be 61.46%, compared to the standard. Currently, supporting
