Abstract

The quality of sanitation in households has not met the requirements of the health standard. The main agent of household sanitation is mother. It has not been firmly determined about the role of each family member in household sanitation management. This quasi-experimental research involved 30 households. The sanitation tasks were carried out by mother, father, and children according to the family agreement. Data were analyzed used paired t-test at a 95% CI. The result showed that division of household tasks gave significant effects: toilet is no longer breeding place for vectors (p=0.023), toilet is cleaned every day (p=0.000), and some waste was reused (p=0.010), and trash was disposed every day (p=0.023). All families are willing to carry out the household management tasks. The task division to all family members has improved the quality of sanitation in household.
