Project Officer (Social & Behavior Change Communicaiton) - BISA Project
1 (One) positions based in East Nusa Tenggara

BISA – Better Investment for Stunting Alleviation ¬– is an integrated nutrition-specific and nutrition-sensitive programme in 2019-2023. The name ‘BISA’ reflects the broad context of nutrition in Indonesia: whilst the level of national and political commitment is high, and resources have been committed to addressing the high rates of stunting and undernutrition, the operationalisation and application of these plans and funds at sub national level is challenging. What is needed is ‘better investment’: using resources better, developing and operationalising policies more effectively, and delivering evidence-based, cost-effective, and sustainable interventions at the household and community levels. BISA aims to reduce stunting by improving the nutritional status of adolescent girls, women of reproductive age, and children under the age of two (CU2) across two Provinces –East Nusa Tenggara and West Java.

Save the Children and Nutrition International are in strategic partnership to deliver this programme, building on our experience and evidence, existing networks and relationships at the community, District, Provincial, and National levels in Indonesia to implement key intervention for the first 1000 Day HH as well as adolescent nutrition. BISA supports the Government of Indonesia (GoI) commitments for stunting reduction, as stated in National Strategy to Accelerate Stunting Reduction 2018-2024, as well as the follow up guidelines (Technical Guidance for Integrated Interventions for Stunting Reduction for district down to village level).
