Background: The burgeoning health burden in Indonesia requires strengthening primary care services through interprofessional collaboration. Purpose: to explore factors contributing to interprofessional collaboration within health centres Indonesia. Methods: Eight focus group discussions involving a range of health professionals from health centres were conducted in four districts in East Java, Indonesia. Thematic analysis was used to generate findings. Results: Collaborative practices in Indonesian health centres are directly affected by health professional interactions (personnel level) e hierarchy and lack of role understanding have been reported as barriers to the interactions. These factors are in turn affected by health centre's environment (organisational level) and the Government legislation/policy (health system). The health centre's environment included organisation's culture, team management, physical space, as well as communication and coordination mechanisms. Conclusions: Factors contributing to collaborative practices in this setting were complex and intertwined. Structuring collective actions or strategies would be required to address the identified collaborative issues.
