Jakarta (ANTARA) – Deputy Chair of the People’s Consultative Assembly (MPR) Lestari Moerdijat highlighted that consistent efforts to handle and prevent stunting require strong commitment from stakeholders.

“Consistent efforts to handle and prevent stunting in Indonesia must be supported by strong political will from stakeholders at the central and regional levels,” he said in a written statement received in Jakarta, Tuesday.

He then quoted a statement from the Minister of Health, Budi Gunadi Sadikin, who stated that the cause of the nominal decline in stunting prevalence in 2023 was the lack of appropriate implementation models for several programs, as well as the increase in the number of new programs. stunted children.

In 2023, the prevalence of stunting in Indonesia will fall by only 0.1 percentage point to 21.5 percent from 21.6 percent in 2022.

Moerdijat questioned the planning of the stunting reduction program in Indonesia and the seriousness of stakeholders in implementing the program.

According to him, in planning a stunting reduction program, it is best to offer a choice of several appropriate implementation methods based on the survey conducted.

He further said that the increasing number of new cases of stunting also shows that the handling of stunting in the country is not yet comprehensive.

He hopes that, as an effort to create a superior nation, significant improvements need to be made in efforts to reduce stunting because the quality of health of each of the nation’s children will determine the resilience and competitiveness of the next generation.

Reducing stunting is a priority program for the Indonesian government which seeks to reduce the prevalence of stunting to 14 percent by 2024.
