The percentage of smoking behavior in the house continues to increase so that in May 2022 it was recorded that 85% of family members with babies and toddlers smoked in the house. Of the 29 Community Health Centers in Musi Banyuasin Regency, it is recorded that in the Working Area of the Balai Agung Health Center the highest percentage of smoking behavior in homes with babies and toddlers is 86% per May 2022.
