Indonesia is an archipelago with rural and urban characteristics. Health problems in Indonesia are distributed in both rural and urban areas. The conditions and characteristics of rural and urban areas are determinants of health problems. The social determinants of health in rural and urban areas are affecting public health status in Indonesia as well as whole part of the world. Efforts to reduce health problems require cross-sector cooperation including local government. The role of health workers is significantly important in collaboration with local governments to solve the health problems. Health workers have innovations and strategies in health services to reduce health problems in rural and urban areas.
