Consultant– Review The Existing Behavior Change Intervention (BCI) Strategy for Iron
Folic Acid (IFA) Supplementation for Pregnant Women, Vitamin A Supplementation
for Children under five and Zinc and Oral Rehydration Salts (ORS) in the treatment
of childhood diarrhea programs
Initiative (MI) is an international Non-Governmental Organization (NGO)
dedicated to ensuring that the world’s most vulnerable – especially women and
children in developing countries – get the vitamins and minerals they need
to survive and thrive. With headquarters in Ottawa, Canada MI maintains
regional offices in New Delhi, India and Dakar, Senegal that manages our
country offices in Asia and Africa.
MI is implementing a
project entitled “Reducing Iron Deficiency Anaemia in pregnant women and
reducing mortality and morbidity in children under five in Indonesia” which is
funded by Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) Australia. To improve
the uptake of key interventions in East Java and East Nusa Tenggara Province,
MI proposes to develop a BCI strategy on the basis of its experience in the
demonstration districts. A BCI plan will be developed and appropriate messages
and channels identified for creating awareness amongst pregnant mothers and
caregivers. In consultation with Ministry of Health and other stakeholders the
development/modification of existing communication materials will also be
undertaken that can be used by the health service providers for counseling and
problem solving. It is expected that use of an appropriate BCI strategy and
supporting BCI interventions will build capacity of health staff, midwives and
cadres for creating awareness on the benefits of these interventions to care
givers and consumers on the one hand and to health workers on the other
including the need for effective counselling to caregivers and proper
administration of the interventions.
