The Vice-President has requested that governors and heads of districts sign letters of commitment to accelerating stunting reduction. All had signed the letter as of 2022.
Progress towards SUN 3.0 Strategic Objectives (SO)
The prevalence of stunting among children under 5 years of age has decreased to 21.6 per cent in 2022. The prevalence of wasting among children under 5 years of age has increased to 7.7 per cent, but the hope is that it can be decreased to 7 per cent by 2024. Advocacy, policy and communication efforts in 2023 include strengthening subnational coordination, strengthening capacities among stakeholders at the subnational level, and advocating for the appropriate implementation of nutrition interventions in the district offices.
Presidential Decree No. 72/2021 established the Acceleration of Stunting Reduction Team at national, provincial, district and village levels. In addition, the Minister of National Development Planning appointed 12 provinces as priority locations for nutrition interventions in 2023 to accelerate stunting reduction in the country. However, the governance structure has focused more on stunting and less on wasting and obesity.
Development partners, academia and civil society organizations have supported the Government of Indonesia and will continue to provide technical assistance to boost the capacities of subnational governments. In addition, the business network will continue to support through nutrition education at the workplace and larger community.
The Government has consistently allocated budgets for nutrition interventions and will continue its financial commitment in 2024. Based on the Government's budget tagging and tracking system, Indonesia in 2022 allocated 34.1 trillion rupiah to support stunting reduction activities. Such activities are intended to target certain groups (adolescent girls, pregnant women, children under 2 years of age, children under 5 years of age and breastfeeding mothers) and should be implemented in prioritized locations. For other SUN Networks, resources are also allocated but commitments vary. A web-based monitoring system was launched in 2022 to map non-governmental contributions to Indonesia in support of nutrition-specific and nutrition-sensitive.
