    Background: The prevalence of urinary tract infections (UTIs) is higher among women than among men; as many as, 50% of women under the age of 30 are reported to have had at least one UTI. Genetic, biologic, behavioral, and other factors play a role in UTIs among women. This study aimed to find out the prevalence of urinary tract in rural area of Indonesia, which is Hadakewa, Lembata, East Nusa Tenggara, and how lifestyle contributes to UTI prevalence. Materials and Methods: Ninety women residing in Hadakewa and Merdeka villages on Lembata Island who met the study’s inclusion criteria took their midstream urine specimens to be analyzed using dipstick urinalysis and were given questionnaires about their lifestyles. This research was an observational study with a cross-sectional approach. Results: Eighty-three (92.2%) of 90 respondents had a UTI. Age groups of 0–10, 11–20, and > 51 years old each accounted for 18.1%; the group aged 21–30 years accounted for 13.3%, and those aged 31–40 and 41–51 years each accounted for 14.4%. Correlation between the availability of water source and UTI was significant (P = 0.001). Conclusion: The prevalence of UTI in women in Hadakewa and Merdeka villages is high. Lifestyle can contribute to UTI.
