On Feb 13, 2014, Kelud volcano, in Kediri District, Indonesia, erupted. The study is intended to examine the effect of the eruption on health related quality of life (HRQoL) among people living in different levels of volcano eruption risk area. A cross sectional study was conducted in and 252 subjects were randomly selected through multistage cluster sampling. There was no difference in mean score of HRQoL between those living in the high risk area (35.93) and those living in the moderate/low risk area (35.69). Age, monthly income and history of chronic disease were important predictors of HRQoL in the total population as well as in each risk area. Increase in age was associated with a decreased HRQoL (Î² -1.951 ; p 0.000). Chronic disease that existed post eruption has significantly lower score of HRQoL (Î² -7.709 ; p 0.014). HRQoL among people living in high risk area was associated with age, income, coping, depression, decreased income, and chronic disease. Factors associated with HRQoL in moderate/low risk area were age, employment, monthly income and history of chronic disease. Approaches to improve peopleâ€™s HRQol in the high risk area should involve psychological intervention and chronic disease prevention and control.
