Better Investment for Stunting Alleviation

The Government of Indonesia is working to eliminate net new stunting cases.

In 2018, one third of children under five in Indonesia were stunted. In response, the Government of Indonesia launched the National Strategy to Accelerate Stunting Prevention. Nutrition International and Save the Children have been working with the government to help bring the strategy to life through the Better Investment for Stunting Alleviation (BISA) project. Launched in 2019, the five-year project has supported the government to improve nutrition for adolescent girls, pregnant and lactating women, women of reproductive age and children under two.

“Kita bisa” means “we can” in Bahasa. Watch the video to learn how the BISA project is working through government ministries to strengthen nutrition programming across two provinces in the country.
