Background: Community Health Center is expected to serve as a gatekeeper, such that most of the health problems can be tackled at the Community Health Center.  Pro­grams such as ma­ter­nal health, family program, immunization, improvement of com­munity nutrition, health pro­­motion, environmental health, and disease control were funded by Operational Health As­sis­tance or Bantuan Operasional Kesehatan (BOK). The main purpose of this study was to analyze factors associated with program co­ve­rage achievement funded by health operational aid at community health center, Ken­dari, South East Sulawesi.

Subjects and Method: An analitycal study with cross-sectional approach was con­duc­ted at se­ve­ral Puskesmas (community health center) Kendari, South East Sulawesi. A total sample of 90 patients was selected for this study by total sampling or saturated sam­pling.  The dependent va­riable was achievement of programe coverage fund­ed by BOK. The independent variables were planning, training and organizing. The data were col­lec­ted by questionnaire and analyzed by chi square.

Results: Achievement of program coverage funded by BOK improved with better plan­ning (OR= 4.51; 95% CI= 1.82 to 11.17; p= 0.002), training support (OR= 6.41; 95%CI= 2.53 to 16.25; p<0.001), and proper organizing (OR= 16.36; 95%CI= 5.67 to 47.09; p<0.001).
