Abstract
Failure to reach one’s potential for growth - is caused by chronic malnutrition and repeated illness during childhood. It reflects the cumulative effects of chronic malnutrition during the 1,000 first days of life, and is also associated with lack of education, poverty, less healthy, and more vulnerability to non-communicable diseases and is indicative of a poor quality of life that negatively affects the nation’s human resources. Globally, Indonesia ranks fifth in terms of stunting. According to the 2014 Global Nutrition Report (based on data from 117 countries), Indonesia is one of the 17 countries with three major malnutrition problems: stunting, wasting and obesity. The 2018 National Health Research (Riskesdas), shows that 30.8% of children under five in Indonesia experience stunting, which is down when compared to the 2013 Riskesdas data, that is 37.2%. In 2017, Indonesian Vice President Jusuf Kalla called for a National Strategy to Accelerate Stunting Prevention. The strategy, supported by the World Bank, was built on Indonesia’s experience and global lessons, particularly Peru’s success in cutting its stunting rate by half in just seven years.
