Transfer of Tobacco Functions as an Effort to Control the Health and Prosperity of Tobacco Farmers

Prisma Andita Pebriaini

Abstract

Tobacco production that is still destined for cigarette production proves that tobacco control in Indonesia is still not enforced. Every day, there are 1,172 deaths from tobacco-related diseases. The existence of the tobacco industry is only ranked 48 out of 66 sectors that contribute to employment. This further proves that the presence of tobacco as a raw material for cigarettes will continue to have a negative impact on society and the environment. Therefore it is necessary to switch the functioning of tobacco into a more useful material with minimal risk. The objective of the proposed program is to improve the welfare of tobacco farmers and public health. Therefore the research method used is descriptive and qualitative through an analysis of the literature. The author has come up with the idea of ​​"Lahanku Penghidupanku" as a solution to solve the problem. "Lahanku Penghidupanku" is a series of concepts to encourage healthy and prosperous farmers by bringing together the diversity of the planted crops. Farmers can explore their expertise in farming, not just in tobacco.This is supported by the acquisition of several farmers in Pamekasan who get bigger results from tobacco crops (Rp6-9 million/Ha/ season), like: onion (Rp31,25 million/Ha/season), tomatoes (Rp7,4million/Ha/season), watermelon (Rp11,5 million/Ha/season) and melon (Rp13,5 million/Ha/season). So, farmer's life can be guaranteed to be more successful if the processing of tobacco products can be controlled. The level of the economy can thus increase, which leads to improved health quality.
