Advocacy Meeting for Expansion of


“Replication Package” of the VAS program to 3 Selected Provinces in
Indonesia

Date: July 19th, 2018

Grant: GAC TB2014

1. Background

Nutrition International (NI; formerly the Micronutrient Initiative) has supported the VAS
program in Indonesia since 2009 in 12 districts of six provinces (North Sumatera, South
Sumatera, West Java, Banten, Riau and West Nusa Tenggara). A coverage evaluation survey
was conducted by NI in 2012 comparing NI-supported and non-NI-supported districts. The
key findings of the survey highlighted that the support that NI was providing to select districts
in improved planning, supply chain and coverage monitoring improved the coverage and
management of the VAS program. On the basis of these findings, NI then worked toward
replicating these processes which were so successful at the district-level, at the provincial
level in the 6 NI-supported provinces during 2012-2016. This “Replication Package” includes
guidance on specifics of micro-planning, budgeting, estimation of VAC stocks, streamlining
the supply chain, recording and reporting including how to use the data to identify low-
coverage districts and plan mop-up activities, monitoring and supervision.

To strengthen government commitment and integrate VAS program with other Maternal, Child
Health and Nutrition programs, in March – October 2017, NI supported MoH to conduct
advocacy meetings to introduce the “Replication Package” of the VAS program (which has
been implemented in six NI supported provinces) to 5 additional non NI provinces (Jambi,
Central Java, Bangka Belitung, West Kalimantan and South Sulawesi). The advocacy efforts
resulted in all five provinces developing action plans to socialize the “Replication Package” of
the VAS program.

NI plans to continue this support to the MOH to carry out similar advocacy meetings in 3
selected Provinces between September and December 2018. In each province, approximately
25-30 participants will be invited to participate. Participants will include:
• Representatives from MoH at national level (staff from the Directorate of
Nutrition, Directorate of Maternal and Child Health).
• Representatives from PHO (staff from Nutrition sub-division, health promotion
sub-division, maternal and child health and pharmacy) from the respective
province.
• Representatives from selected DHO (Nutrition division, health promotion
division, maternal and child health and pharmacy unit) in each PHO.
NI is therefore seeking to hire an agency to support NI to conduct these meetings in the 3
identified provinces.
