The BADUTA Programme is a public sector and market integrated - delivery approach to improve maternal and infant dietary practices and nutritional status including activities designed to address hygiene with the objective to reduce childhood stunting in the East Java province in Indonesia. This programme was funded by the Government of the Netherlands and implemented by the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN), in partnership with the East Java provincial and district health authorities, Save the Children (Netherlands), NAZAVA Water Filters, and Paramitra – a local non-governmental organisation.
This report presents findings from baseline and endline cross-sectional surveys conducted as part of an impact evaluation of the BADUTA Programme. To assess the impact of the integrated package of interventions on child stunting a cluster randomised controlled trial was conducted in 12 sub-districts of 2 districts in East Java. Two approaches to assessing the impact of the interventions were used. In the first approach, the impact of the interventions was assessed by repeated cross-sectional surveys at baseline before the interventions started, and at endline 2 years later. In these surveys, both mothers with children 0-23 months of age and pregnant women resident in the study area were sampled. The impact was assessed by comparing the change in prevalence of the key impact indicators between the treatment groups in the children under two years of age and pregnant women. In the second approach, a cohort of pregnant women and their children to 18 months of age from selected clusters in the study area were followed up.
