The service unit "Pusyan Gatra" or Center for Prosperous Family Services is a program inaugurated by the Population and Family Planning Agency in April 2012. In the opinion of Zeitamhl and Parasuraman, who explained that to know the quality of services will be perceived tangibly by the community, there must be the primary indicator of satisfaction which lies in 5 (five) dimensions; Tangibles, Reliability, Responsibility, Assurance, and Empathy.
