Abstract

The use of the Maternal and Child Health book (KIA book) as a health promotion medium to increase knowledge about stunting is considered not optimal. This encourages researchers to create media creations for organizer abacuses of pregnant women, children and mothers of toddlers. The research location is in the working area of Puskesmas Kedungtuban because it has the highest number of stunting cases among the Blora Regency Health Office. This study aims to test the effectiveness of the abacus media compared to conventional media (KIA book). This research is a quasy experiment with the equivalent control group form. The subjects of this study were 36 pregnant women in the working area of the Kedungtuban Public Health Center who had a risk of giving birth to a stunted baby as many as 36 respondents, consisting of 18 respondents from the abacus media group (treatment) and 18 respondents from the conventional media group (control). The research instrument was a questionnaire whose validity was tested by the expert judgment method. The average knowledge about stunting in the abacus media group was 14.44 before treatment and 19.11 after treatment with increased knowledge of 4.67. The average knowledge about stunting in the conventional media group was 17.22 before treatment and 19.56 after treatment with increased knowledge 2.33. The t-test result in the abacus media group was 0.000 (p value <0.05) while in the conventional media group it was 0.003 (p value <0.05). The result of the t test (independent) which compared the increase in knowledge in the abacus media group and conventional media was 0.26 (p value> 0.05). There is a significant difference in knowledge about stunting based on the treatment of the abacus media. There is a significant difference in knowledge about stunting based on conventional media treatment. However, there was no significant difference in increasing knowledge based on the treatment of the abacus media with conventional media. Thus, the abacus media has an equivalent effectiveness with conventional media. We recommend that the media for organizer of pregnancy, children, and mothers of toddlers be developed to be used as a media for health promotion in the mother’s class.
