Indonesia has a high commitment to promote regional nutritional improvements, both domestically and globally. The Government of Indonesia will continue to make various strengthening efforts, from regulatory frameworks to intervention frameworks, financing frameworks, and even monitoring and evaluation frameworks.

Over the last decade, Indonesia’s efforts to increase nutrition have shown significant results. This was reflected in the stunting of children and the reduced prevalence of exhaustion. This is the result of a child’s rapid weight loss, Amin added.
