Maternal, Adolescents, and Young Child Nutrition and WASH study and Action Research (Indonesia)
In 2019 Empatika began a multi-phase project using a variety of participatory approaches to explore maternal, adolescents, young child nutrition and WASH. This research will support the development of Social and Behaviour Change Communication (SBCC) strategies for stunting alleviation programs in Indonesia. The first phase has now been completed, involving immersions with families in four locations across West Java and Nusa Tenggara Timur.
The later phases will begin in early 2020 and will include structured research to follow-up on issues highlighted during the exploratory phase. This will provide the basis for Human Centered Design (HCD) workshops at the community level to brainstorm and prototype solutions to address challenges identified by community members themselves.
This project builds on Empatika’s previous work in 2019 that used immersion research to support a HCD process related to complementary feeding in Indonesia. We are excited to continue bringing research insights into action.
