Several variables identified as variables that affect the performance of health development consist of education, economic, infrastructure, and health resources variable. Each variable is categorized as latent variable in which each variable has its own indicators. Collected data will be analyzed using quantitative analysis by applying structural equation models (SEM) with Partial Least Square (PLS). The result findings indicate that health performance is influenced simultaneously by variables including in the model such as social, economic, infrastructure, and health resources. The dominant factors influencing health development are social and economic factor representing the willingness to pay and the ability to pay for health services.
