This study discusses policy implementation, viewed from policy sources, resource arrangements, the characteristics of implementing agencies, bureaucratic structures, communications, the influence of dispositions and socio-economic and political circumstances in control of Diphtheria Outbreak and Outbreak Response Immunization (ORI) in Depok City in 2017. This type of research is qualitative research with descriptive design, through in-depth interviews and document review.
