Other Puskesmas officers are only involved in determining the schedule for implementing activities so that they do not conflict with the schedule of other Puskesmas activities. Planning is done in writing with a planning format from the Treasurer of the Health Center. However, this plan is only related to the development and service activities of the NDP Posbindu. The factors that influence interprofessional cooperation in the NDP program are cooperation, communication, ethics, and the role of the profession.
