Stunting in Indonesia: Winning the battle but losing the war?

ABOUT 27.7% (1 out of 4) Indonesian children under five years of age remain stunted, despite massive efforts by the government. This figure from the Health Ministry’s 2019 Basic Health Survey (Riskedas) indicates an improvement from the 2018 national average of 31.8%. But with a stunting prevalence of 42.6% East Nusa Tenggara (NTT) — one of the archipelago’s most deprived and neglected regions — is perhaps a better gauge of the nation’s success, if not trials and tribulations, in its ongoing battle against this scourge.
