Abstract

Public health is something that is very important to be considered by the government. The existence of problems in the health sector will affect the growth and development of children, the quality of life of human resources and the competitiveness of the nation. One of the health problems is the high prevalence of stunting. Pemalang Regency is 11th in Central Java in terms of stunting and 6th in poverty. This study aims to analyse how coordination is carried out between stakeholders in dealing with stunting. The two institutions studied were Bappeda as the coordinating agency and the Health Service as the leading sector. This study uses a qualitative descriptive method with informants from the Bappeda and the helth office. The results showed that the coordination carried out by the Bappeda as the institution that carried out the monitoring and evaluation of the implementation of the program handling had been carried out well because the Health Service always reported on the progress of the program once a month and when a problem occurred, it was immediately resolved. The low level of understanding, the level of public knowledge about the importance of good nutrition is an obstacle in handling stunting and the role of the private sector which has not taken part in this program is also something that needs to be considered, because so far only the government has handled the APBN, APBD and APBDes funds.
