In response to the coronavirus pandemic, GAIN has developed the Keeping Food Markets Working (KFMW) programme to provide targeted support to help sustain core food systems, workers and markets during COVID-19 emergency. The programme has the overarching goal of mitigating the risk of economic collapse of food systems in order to sustain the availability and affordability of nutritious and safe foods, and contribute to lowering the burden of ill-health, particularly for the most vulnerable. Within the programme, GAIN will support Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) that produce nutritious foods to weather the current crisis and to guard against future shocks and will initially focus on Kenya and Nigeria.

One of the program offerings is the development of options papers that will outline how GAIN and other stakeholders can support nutritious food SMES during and after the pandemic. GAIN is seeking proposals from qualified service providers for the development of the three option papers.

Since 2014, GAIN Indonesia has implemented several projects such as Maternal and Infant Young Child Nutrition as part of a wider portfolio of projects and studies relating to nutrition.

One of the main activities is a behaviour change intervention through in-person sessions called emotional-demonstration (emo-demo) conducted by health staff or community health volunteer (cadre) in the existing monthly growth monitoring activities at the integrated health post (Posyandu). The Emo-demos have proven successful in increasing key behaviours around correct IYCF practices of children under 5 years old such as exclusive breastfeeding, dietary diversity, healthy snacking and handwashing, among mothers and caregivers of children under 5 years old. 

GAIN Indonesia is looking for an alternative way to address this situation by substituting the in-person session with an online session by developing digital versions of emo-demo games or completely new mobile or digital games to trigger behaviour change. Gamification offers an avenue to continue the emo-demo activities during this social distancing period and to reach mothers and children who do not traditionally visit health posts.
