Malaria is still a public health problem worldwide, which is increasingly difficult to handle due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Indonesia is a country targeted by WHO to become a Malaria-free country by 2030. Mobile and migrant populations (MMPs) on Buru Island, as a Malaria-vulnerable group, pose a particular challenge in efforts to accelerate and maintain elimination. The use of eucalyptus oil as a positive deviation (PD) in this group is an innovative strategy in Malaria control programs in this population. Method(s): This research is an analytic observational study with a cross-sectional design to see the relationship between PD and Malaria in MMPs. Multivariate analysis with logistic regression was performed to determine the most associated PD with Malaria in the MMPs group. Primary data was collected through interviews with a structured questionnaire and observation of 72 people from the MMPs group who met the criteria. Results and Discussion: From 19 PD identified, only seven related to Malaria in MMPs (p-value <alpha 0.05) in preventing Malaria: cleaning the environment (p=0.032), burning garbage (p=0.005), burning dry leaves (p=0.013), using the eucalyptus oil (0.001), consuming herbal medicine (p=0.013), "Baupu"/" Baukuf" (p=0.028) and utilizing hot steam from a "Kettle" (p=0.043). The logistic regression analysis showed that eucalyptus oil was the variable most related to Malaria prevention in MMPs (p=0.027;95% CI for EXP(B): 1.227 - 30.799). Conclusions and suggestions: Identification of PD and applying them in everyday life is essential in preventing Malaria in MMPs. Utilizing the potential of eucalyptus oil as a natural way to prevent Malaria in the era of elimination is an innovative and promising specific local-based approach, considering that Buru Island is a eucalyptus granary area in Maluku, Indonesia.

Introduction: Burdensand types of occupation will cause psychological stress during Covid-19 pandemic, especially jobs in the medical field. The rapid transmission of the disease and the increasing number of people infected by Covid-19 bring anxiety and worry and decrease the level of happiness that will obstruct the secretion of oxytocin hormone that brings problems to breast milk production and breastfeeding process. This study was aimed at analyzing the correlation between occupation, stress level and breast milk production during Covid-19 pandemic in Indonesia. Method: This correlational study was conducted by using cross sectional design.Thetechniqueused to collect the samples totaling 110 breastfeeding mothers was simple random sampling technique. The independent variables were occupation and stress level, whereas the dependent variable was breast milk production. This study used Perceived Stress Scale (PSS) questionnaire to measure the stress level and another questionnaire to measure the smoothness of breast milk production. Furthermore, data analysis was done by using Chisquare statistic test with the significance level of p < 0.05. Result: The result of this study showed that of 110 respondents, most of them (67%) worked in the medical field;nearly all (70.9%) experienced severe stress;and nearly all (80%) had unsmooth production of breast milk. Whilst, the result of Chi-square test showed that the value of p =0.000 showing that there was a correlation between occupation, stress level and breast milk production during Covid-19 pandemic in Indonesia. Conclusion: Occupation, stress level and breast milk production are correlated during Covid-19 pandemic in Indonesia. Therefore, the medical workers, especially nurses are expected to play their active roles to educate and teach the breastfeeding mothers how to manage stress correctly to maintain the production of breast milk in any conditions.
