In 2016, the government had issued a regulation to improve the local government's concern in protecting the human rights of its diversed society. The Baduy Dalam tribe, located in Lebak District, Indonesia, has high adherence to their traditions, whereby they deems modern life as taboo, and avoid conventional healthcare. However, the government has a responsibility to respect and fulfill the community's right especially right to healthcare despite its distinctive characteristics. This qualitative research is to analyze the readiness of Lebak District as a district which is concerned for the right to healthcare through in-depth interviews. Content analysis was done to explore the thematic phenomena. The process of triangulation and the ethical aspects were also applied. This study was conducted in Lebak District, Indonesia. Informants were 17 persons chosen by criteria of appropriateness and adequacy. Human rights especially rights to healthcare in Lebak District have not been fulfilled evenly. The Baduy Dalam community got a little attention about their limitations in receiving conventional healthcare services. The local government does not equally fulfill rights to healthcare among diversed society. As a result, it appears that Lebak District has not been ready and prepared to be a district of human rights care.
