The variables observed in this study were posbindu utilization, sample blood pressure, and total cholesterol levels in the sample. The results of the research, there was the effect of using posbindu on sample blood pressure (p = 0.042), and there was no effect on the use of total cholesterol level in the sample (p = 0.590).
