The results of the Indonesian Health Demographic Survey show that AKN in Indonesia reached 15 per 1000 live births in 2017, this figure still has not reached the SDGs target of less than 12 per 1000 live births. The samples in this study were all samples of the 2017 IDHS that met the criteria totaling 79,710 samples. The results univariate analysis found that the proportion of infants experiencing neonatal death was 2.83%. In the bivariate analysis, it was found that the related variables were ANC (p 0.000 and OR = 3.91), place of delivery (p 0.000 and OR = 2.07), LBW (p 0.000 and OR = 4.20), low maternal education (p 0.000 and OR = 2.95), consuming iron (p 0.000 and OR = 3.61). It is hoped that health workers in Indonesia can invite pregnant women to do complete antenatal care, in order to avoid risk factors for neonatal death.
