Globally malaria still causes high mortality rates especially in infants. In Indonesia, Papua is one of the provinces with the highest incidence and the Mimika Regency is the regency with the highest prevalence and incidence. In addition, the main problem with malaria management is the parasite resistance of P. Falsiparum and P. vivax because the treatment is not complete. The role of parents is necessary in the administration of malaria drugs in infants, to prevent repeated malaria and complications. The research aims to determine the difference in the effectiveness of Short Messege Service Reminder (SMS), Home Care Nursing (HCN), and Short Messege Service Reminder, Home Care Nursing (SMS + HCN) on parental compliance in malaria drug delivery Infants in new Mimika district Puskesmas Mimika County. This research is a quantitative study with experimental quasi design, a population of 60 respondents who had a toddler who had been diagnosed with vivax malaria divided into 2 categories namely Papua and Non-Papuans, and 10-person intervention group respectively. The results of the three interventions affect parental compliance level in the administration of malaria medication in infants where α < 0.05 with HCN PV intervention results = 0.024 for Papua and non-Papua PV = 0.004, for SMS intervention in Papua PV = 0,014 and non-Papua PV = 0,005 and in HCN + SMS intervention on Papua PV = 0,004 and non-Papua PV = 0,023. In conclusion, HCN, SMS and HCN + SMS interventions can be used by health personnel to improve parental compliance in malaria medication in infants which can eventually increase recurring incidence and parasite inconsistency in P. vivax.
