AbstractNCD cases in one city in East Java Indonesia have increased from 2017 to 2018, especially in the Southern Region City. Hypertension and Diabetes Mellitus are the two highest NCDs. Thus, health screening is secondary prevention that is important to do to against NCDs’ increase. This study aims to find out the priority and root which cause health screening problem and used in planning and implementing prevention of NCDs appropriately. This study was a descriptive observational study conducted in July 2019. The problem priority detected in health screening is the lack of integrated development posts that can be accessed by the community, especially time during implementation. The root cause was many targets spread over in the large area and did not have much time to participate in integrated development posts, a low number of cadres available, and a low number of health kits and infrastructure. Recommendations that can be given are strengthening intersectoral collaboration, empowering communities by initiating the formation of integrated development posts with youth cadres, and opening schedules in the afternoon to reach other targets that have high mobility, especially workers.
