Many Indonesian families have limited access to a high quality of health care services and still practiced unhealthy behaviors. Therefore, the healthy Indonesia program with a family approach aims to increase the accessibility of people to health services by home visits. The study aimed to analyze the healthy family index and to identify the 12 healthy family indicators coverage in Nulle Village East Nusa Tenggara Provinces. It will become tools for health facilities to create intervention based on the indicators which are not implemented by families. A household survey method was used to collect the data from 777 families in Nulle Village. Data was collected by using Indonesia's healthy family Questionnaire. The Healthy family index then was then determined according to three categories namely; healthy family (>0,80); pre-healthy family (0,50-0,80), and unhealthy family (<0,50). The study indicated that 56,49% of families were categorized as pre healthy families, 28,05% were healthy families and unhealthy families accounted for 15,44%. The lowest healthy indicators coverage were hypertension patients who take regular medicine (19,84%), followed by severe mental disorder patients who got access to medication (20%), and only 30,58% couple of childbearing age participated in the family planning program. The majority of the family are categorized as pre healthy families, therefore it is highly recommended that Public health Nurses should be more active to promote the 12 healthy family indicators. The family should be well informed so that they can improve the family’s health quality.
