Potential Bidders

Dear Potential Bidders,

Nutrition International (NI), in partnership with the governments of Indonesia, Australia and Canada, is implementing MITRA - ‘Reducing Iron Deficiency Anemia in pregnant women and reducing mortality and morbidity in children under five’ in 10 districts in East Java (EJ) and 10 districts in East Nusa Tenggara (ENT).

As part of the program, NI extended technical assistance at the national, provincial and district level governments to strengthen the commitment for micronutrient supplementation programs, to increase resource allocation for procurement, management and implementation of micronutrient programs with focus on improved service provision and increased awareness through Behavior Change Intervention (BCI) strategies. The MITRA program has demonstrated an effective approach to improve micronutrient programming with significant lessons learned around a range of areas, including forecasting, budgeting and procuring micronutrients; ways in which Puskesmas staff persuade caregivers to use ORS and zinc instead of antibiotics to treat childhood diarrhoea; and the advocacy that was successful in influencing district governments to ensure adequate budgets for micronutrient interventions.

During October-November 2019, best practices and lesson learned from the MITRA program implementation including budgets leveraged and the program strategies that have been adopted by the local government and integrated among health programs in 20 selected districts in East Java and East Nusa Tenggara Provinces will be compiled, analyzed and documented. This will be a report by NI with support from the Center for Health Policy and Management, University of Gadjah Mada (CHPM-UGM).

Further, NI would like to undertake a meeting at national level to disseminate best practices and lesson learnt from the MITRA program among the national, provincial and district governments as well as other stakeholder and partners (i.e. Bappenas as the coordinating body of stunting reduction, MoH, civil society organizations, academia, UN agencies, donors and the private sector). The purpose of the meeting is to advocate for adoption and scale-up of the MITRA program across Indonesia.

During the meeting the following topics will be discussed and presented by speakers:  (1) National Strategy to Accelerate Stunting Prevention; (2) Update from MoH on the implementation of integrated program to stunting reduction and prevention 2018-2019; (3) Presentation by NI on the best practices and lessons learnt from the MITRA program implementation in ENT and EJ provinces. There will also be a panel discussion from 2 DHOs of MITRA project to share experiences and best practices of integrated micronutrient program implementation and discuss program challenges. A media conference to share the best practices of MITRA as an effective approach that contribute to reduction and prevention of stunting in Indonesia also will be conducted during the meeting. Based on discussions during the event, an action plan to adopt/scale up the best practices and approach of the program will also be developed. To conduct the dissemination meeting of MITRA best practices and lesson learnt at the nati
onal level and to facilitate media coverage , NI seeks to hire the services of an Event Management & Media Agency.
