The Maternal health services indicators on the Minimun Services Standard (MSS) states that pregnant women should deliver in standard health service facilities. One of the efforts made for the acceleration of maternal and infant mortality rate is the optimization of handling of emergency neonatal obstetrics/ complications of basic service level through Basic Emergency Obstetric Neonatal Care (BEONC). BEONC is one of the health service facilities that provides maternal health services according to MSS. Therefore the reinforcement of BEONC of both service management and support resources must be continuously optimized. This study aims to determine the resources needed to the implementation of MSS maternal health services indicators. Qualitative research was carried out at seven BEONC in Depok City from December 2017 to January 2018. The informants were 38 policy makers at the Health Service level, the head of BEONC, coordinator of BEONC and health officers. To obtain valid results, researchers conducted data triangulation with indept interview and focus group discussion techniques and document review related to the implementation at BEONC. The results showed that human resources had not been prepared with sufficient quantity or quality, standard operational procedures, adequate facilities and operational budget. The conclusion is that the resources were not optimal. Not all the health officers were involved in BEONC, quality control team and the stakeholders not support the implementation.
