In Tanah Bumbu itself, the incidence of diarrhea from 2014 to 2019 was among the top 10 most common diseases. The percentage of patients served in 2019 was 33.26% of the detection targets. While in infants, only 3.4% of the number of detection targets. This study aims to see the spatial description and influence of the districts’ condition in Tanah Bumbu Regency with the diarrhea incidence. This research took place in the ten districts of Tanah Bumbu Regency.
