REPOST-To Conduct Dialogue Session to Advocate Multi-Stakeholders at National Level

 Dear Potential Bidders,

Anaemia among adolescent girls is one of key public health problems in Indonesia. According to the Riskesdas 2013, the prevalence of anemia among adolescent girls and women of reproductive age (15 to 24 years) in Indonesia was 18.4%. Meanwhile, some studies indicate higher data (anemia is estimated to be 40%-50% in adolescent girls) in some area 1. Anemia is first cause of Disability Adjusted Life-Year among the adolescent girls, hindering them to actively participate in school, hence reaching their full potential. Compared to adolescent boys, adolescent girls are more prone to anaemia due to iron loss during menstruation cycle and inadequate iron-rich diet intake. Accordingly, to prevent anaemia in adolescent girls, Nutrition International (NI) has been supporting Ministry of Health (MOH) since 2017 to implement Weekly Iron Folic Acid Supplementation (WIFAS) programs in Indonesia.

Due to the pandemic regular monitoring and reporting processes of the WIFAS program were also adversely affected. Consequently, multiple virtual applications applications (including CERIA, SIGIZI, SIMPATI, Google form and WhatsApp) were developed and utilized to collect and reporting the coverage and consumption data. CERIA and SIGIZI were developed by Ministry of Health to for nutrition services' reporting including WIFA program, however, these systems are not yet streamlined. Complexities and non-alignment of these various strategies and application that have been utilized for WIFA supplementation program will negatively affect the program performance report, such as under reporting of coverage data, errors in gathered data, incomplete data, etc.

School have started to gradually re-open since July 2021 with hybrid modalities, extra precautions to minimize C-19 infections, and limit students' attendance. As mentioned above, WIFA supplementation is ongoing through various platforms, including Puskesmas and community level. Hence, there is a need to align and streamline monitoring and reporting processes across all these platforms and ensure commitment, support, and collaboration among four key stakeholders (MOH, MOEd, MOHA and MORA) and UKS/M to plan, implement, monitor, supervise and report on the WIFAS program.

With the above context, NI will facilitate a dialogue session at national level to discuss with multi-stakeholders the ongoing issues, propose changes and request corresponding updates in national guidelines, policies, resources on WIFAS program within COVID/post-COVID context.
