Abstract
Background: This study analyzed the determinants of malnutrition children under five years of age among the fishermen community in Jakarta Bay, Indonesia. Methods: This is a cross-sectional study which involved households having under five years of age children as samples. The study involved 100 children drawn using multi-stage random sampling. The nutritional status of children under five years of age was assessed by using an anthropometric index which is based on the ratio between body mass and age from WHO Standards. We used multiple logistic regressions to analyze the determinants. Result: The result indicates that the risks of malnutrition and under-nutrition affecting under five years of age children were high among fishermen community in Jakarta Bay with 5% and 15%, respectively. Risk factors were pregnant women who did not do prenatal visits on a regular basis (OR = 8.207; β = 2.105), poor sanitation (OR = 6.214; β = 1.827), head of family’s occupation as a fisherman (OR = 4.120; β = 1.416), mother with high-risk pregnancy who was ≤ 20 or ≥ 40 years of age (OR = 3.484; β = 1.248), children who were often sick (OR = 3.423; β = 2.105), and poor household (OR = 2.480; β = 0.908). Conclusions: Children’s nutrition issues among fishermen community were multidimensional in nature. Any intervention program, therefore, shall be integrated between health programs, poverty eradication, and sanitation improvement.
