Better Investment for Stunting Alleviation (BISA) Project in Indonesia




The Better Investment for Stunting Alleviation (­BISA) programme is an integrated nutrition-specific and nutrition-sensitive programme designed jointly by Save the Children (SC) and Nutrition International (NI) to assist the Government of Indonesia (GoI) to realise the goal of the National Strategy to Accelerate Stunting Prevention (2018-2024), and the revised National Strategy for the Acceleration of Stunting Rate Reduction (2021-2024). BISA targets two Provinces – West Java and East Nusa Tenggara Timur.


To support the GoI’s ambition to reduce stunting, BISA will:

1.    Implement a Social and Behaviour Change Communication (SBCC) Package focused on improved maternal, infant, and young child nutrition (MIYCN) and water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) practices of adolescents, pregnant and lactating women (PLW), and caregivers of children under two;

2.    Provide technical assistance to District and Provincial government and health service providers to improve the delivery and enhance access to and use of Iron-Folic Acid for pregnant women and pregnant adolescent girls; Weekly Iron Folic Acid for adolescent girls; vitamin A supplementation, zinc, and oral rehydration salts for children under five, and MIYCN counselling for pregnant and lactating women, adolescent girls and caregivers;

3.    Provide technical assistance to the National, Provincial and District government to improve the allocation and effective use of funding and human resources at Provincial, District, and Village levels.


Over five years (2019-2024), BISA will enable 3.3 million people, including 734,100 women, 489,343 children under two, and 1.45m adolescent girls to access high impact nutrition services. BISA will test, and scale-up two packages of interventions: (1) The ‘Essential’ Package focused on strengthening the supply side of nutrition service delivery; and (2) The ‘Essential+’ Package that combines supply-side services with demand-side services through the provision of direct support to communities. The two packages will be tested in four districts (two per Province) in the first two years to assess the impact and generate evidence, and at the end of year three the package will be scaled-up to an additional eight districts (total of 12 Districts).
