2. INTRODUCTION TO THE RFP

2.1. Nutrition International is an Ottawa-based, international not-for-profit organization


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.
Working with impacted families, communities and nations, we are improving lives of
close to 500 million people in more than 70 countries across Asia, Africa and Latin
America.

Nutrition International (NI) (formerly known as the Micronutrient Initiative), a renowned


International Development organization based out in Ottawa, Canada, has a
commitment to eradicate global ‘hidden hunger’ by implementing interventions that focus
on women and children in developing countries. It aims to generate innovative and
sustainable solutions to reduce vitamin and mineral deficiencies among women,
newborns, and children. It builds on robust evidence-based research and evaluation in
order to demonstrate excellent return on investment of scaling-up highly cost-effective
micronutrient interventions. NI aspires to be a global center of excellence in technical
and programmatic support in this field.

In collaboration with key stakeholders such as governments, private sectors and civil
society groups, NI seeks to tackle the aforementioned problems that affects one third of
the world’s population. NI engages in tailoring health and nutrition strategies as well as
up-scaling existing program in various regions in the globe including Africa, Asia, the
Caribbean, Latin America and the Middle East. NI’s international Board of Directors
directs its interventions that reach approximately 500 million people in more than 70
countries.

One of NI’s key strategic goals is to enhance the global impact of micronutrient
interventions by generating cutting-edge knowledge and utilizing it to develop sound
policies and programmes while consolidating political will to achieve its vision. NI aspires
to position itself as a global center of excellence in generating scientific research in the
field of micronutrient programmes. It provides quality assurance for research and
programmes while disseminating and translating new knowledge to influence and
improve national and global policies and programmes. NI provides guidance and support
on existing and future programme evaluations and coordinates the analysis and
utilization of evaluation activity results.

NI has been implementing high-impact, high-coverage health and nutrition initiatives for
vulnerable communities in Indonesia since 2006. NI’s priority objectives in Indonesia

NutritionIntl.org
Page 3 of 21
RFP No. 2038-XX

include the survival and health of children, adolescent girls, pregnant and lactating
women as well as women of reproductive age, primarily through improved coverage and
use of key micronutrients, such as vitamin A, zinc, iron and folic acid, wheat flour
fortification and iodized salt.

To support the Government of Indonesia’s (GoI) ambition to reduce stunting, NI jointly


by Save the Children (SC) will be implementing the Better Investment for Stunting
Alleviation (BISA) program. BISA program is an integrated nutrition-specific and
nutrition-sensitive program for assisting the GoI to realise the goal of National Strategy
to Accelerate Stunting Prevention (2018-2024). BISA targets two Provinces – West Java
(WJ) and Nusa Tenggara Timur (NTT).

Prior to the start of activities, BISA is implementing a 6-month inception phase (July
2019 – January 2020) investing time to develop a whole project strategy for Social and
Behaviour Change (SBC), informed by the revised theory of change that demonstrates
the key behaviours and social norms that should be addressed to improve stunting
outcomes.

In view of the above, Save and NI are contracting a consultant/agency for designing the
SBC Strategy for Better Investment for Stunting Alleviation (BISA) project in Indonesia.

ANNEXURE A

Develop a Social and Behaviour Change Strategy for improving nutritional status in pre-
pregnancy stage and first 1000 days of a child’s life in the selected province of Indonesia

About the partners

Nutrition International (NI) has been implementing high-impact, high-coverage health, and
nutrition initiatives for vulnerable communities in Indonesia since 2006. NI’s priority objectives in
Indonesia include the survival and health of children, adolescent girls, pregnant and lactating
women as well as women of reproductive age, primarily through improved coverage and use of
key micronutrients, such as vitamin A, zinc, iron and folic acid, wheat flour fortification and iodized
salt.

Save the Children (SC) has been working in Indonesia since 1976 and has worked in 16 of
Indonesia’s 34 Provinces. In 2017, SC worked in 11 Provinces and 43 Districts, reaching over
230,000 direct beneficiaries. SC’s programming and technical expertise are primarily in the areas
of health and nutrition, education, and child rights – including child protection, child poverty, and
child rights governance. Save the Children is also an active player in the national policy and
advocacy space, particularly in the realm of working with sub-national government actors on
effective management of financial and technical resources.

BISA project

The Better Investment for Stunting Alleviation (BISA) project is an integrated nutrition-specific and
nutrition-sensitive project designed jointly by Save the Children and Nutrition International (BISA
team) to assist the Government of Indonesia (GoI) to realise the goal of National Strategy to
Accelerate Stunting Prevention (2018-2024). BISA targets two Provinces – West Java (WJ) and
Nusa Tenggara Timur (NTT).

To support the GoI’s ambition to reduce stunting, BISA will:


1. Implement a Social and Behaviour Change Communication (SBCC) Plan focused on
improved maternal, infant, and young child nutrition (MIYCN) and water, sanitation, and
hygiene (WASH) practices of adolescents, pregnant and lactating women (PLW), and
caregivers of children under two;
2. Provide technical assistance to District and Provincial government and health service
providers to improve the delivery and enhance access to and use of iron-folic acid for
pregnant women and pregnant adolescent girls; Weekly Iron Folic Acid for adolescent
girls; vitamin A supplementation, zinc, and oral rehydration salts for children under five,
and MIYCN counselling for pregnant and lactating women, adolescent girls and
caregivers;
3. Provide technical assistance to the national, Provincial, and District government to
improve the allocation and effective use of funding and human resources at Provincial,
District, and Village levels.

NutritionIntl.org
Page 10 of 21
RFP No. 2038-XX

Over five years, BISA will enable 3.3 million people, including 734,100 women, 489,343 children
under two, and 1.45m adolescent girls to access high impact nutrition services. BISA will test, and
scale-up two packages of interventions: (1) The ‘Essential’ Package focused on strengthening
the supply side of nutrition service delivery; and (2) The ‘Essential+’ Package that combines
supply-side services with demand-side services through the provision of direct support to
communities. The two packages will be tested in four districts (two per Province) in the first two
years to assess impact and generate evidence (Phase 1), and at the end of year 3 the package
will be scaled-up to an additional eight districts to a total of 12 Districts (Phase 2).

Background and rationale for the SBCC strategy

Indonesia is the fourth most populous country in the world, with a total population of 260 million,
including 24 million children under age five. Despite being newly classified as a lower-middle-
income country, with a per capita GDP of USD3,800, and being the largest economy in Southeast
Asia, Indonesia’s human development indicators place it 116th in global rankings (out of 189)
while the World Bank Human Capital Index (HCI) ranks it 87 out of 157. Across the country, 10%
of children under 5 years are wasted, 18% underweight, and 31% are stunted, with wide variation
by province (from 17% to 43%) and between Districts and population groups. These rates place
Indonesia among the top five countries with the highest burden of malnutrition.

Nationally, 17% of pregnant women are underweight (compared to 15% of non-pregnant women),
with 37% in NTT (only 2% in West Java). Anaemia, which can lead to maternal death as well as
low birth weight, is particularly high, with 49% anaemia amongst pregnant women. A study by NI
suggests high rates of anaemia amongst adolescent girls too.

Child growth depends on the mother’s health and nutritional status before and during pregnancy,
and caregiving practices (exclusive breastfeeding, appropriate complementary feeding, and
hygiene) from 0-24 months. National Data shows that children become gradually more stunted
between birth and 2 years suggesting inadequate dietary intake and caregiving practices
throughout that period. Childhood anaemia is also common with 40% prevalence nationally.

Estimates are that up to 50% of stunting is a result of poor WASH. Inadequate WASH behaviours
– handwashing without soap, unsafe handling of feces, and unclean drinking water – result in
diarrhoea, parasitic infections, and chronic gut inflammation (environmental enteropathy disorder,
EED), a major contributor to undernutrition. Emerging evidence from other countries suggests
that EED linked to ongoing ingestion of pathogens may be a key driver of stunting, but there is
little evidence from Indonesia on the risk of EED.

Indonesia is one of the top 15 countries with the highest burden of childhood diarrhoea. According
to 2012 DHS (the latest available), the prevalence of diarrhoea amongst children under two years
of age (CU2) nationally is 21%, and 12% for children under five years of age (CU5). Poor WASH
behaviours, diarrhoea, and undernutrition also increase risk of pneumonia, the leading infectious
killer of CU5. Indonesia’s pneumonia rate nationally is 18.5%, spiking to 40% in NTT.

Prior to the start of activities, BISA is implementing a 6-month inception phase (August 2019 –
January 2020) investing time to develop a whole project strategy for Social and Behaviour Change
(SBC), informed by the revised theory of change that demonstrates the key behaviours and social
norms that should be addressed to improve stunting outcomes.

NutritionIntl.org
Page 11 of 21
RFP No. 2038-XX

In view of the above, Save and NI are contracting a consultant/agency for designing the SBC
Strategy for Better Investment for Stunting Alleviation (BISA) project in Indonesia.

In the inception phase (to January 31, 2020) the consultant/agency will design a high-level SBC
strategy, informed by the project’s theory of change and desk review, covering all three of the
BISA project strategic objectives:

SO1: Improved MIYCN and WASH practices of adolescents, PLW and caregivers of CU2
SO2: Improved access to and use of IFA for pregnant women and pregnant adolescent girls,
WIFA for adolescent girls, VAS, zinc& ORS for children U5, and MIYCN counselling for
PLW, PLAG, and caregivers of CU2
SO3: Additional and more efficient and effective use of funding, policies, and regulations, and
human resources to prevent stunting

In the development phase (to April 30, 2020) the consultant/agency will further develop the SBC
strategy, informed by the findings of the formative research to identify barriers and enablers to
good health and nutrition practices and narrowing down the focus behaviours through behavioural
analysis and consultation with key project/government stakeholders. The consultant/agency will
also develop an implementation plan with costing as well as required SBC materials.

The SBC strategy targeted audiences are as follows:

The primary audience includes people the SBC strategy directly targets with communication
about nutrition practices: Pregnant women, mothers of children under two and adolescent girls.

The secondary audience includes people who influence the nutrition behaviours of the primary
audience: Family members (husband, mother-in-law, etc.), frontline health workers, secondary
school teachers, local leaders/influential people in the community, government officials at
national, province, district and village level.

Overall objective
To formulate effective SBC strategy and implementation plan with costing as well as design
SBC materials for the BISA project to be implemented in the targeted districts of West Java and
Nusa Tenggara Timur in Indonesia.

Scope of work
To develop a high level social and behavior change strategy during the inception period informed
by the recommended theory of change, and to be further refined based on formative
assessments. This overarching strategy should be for all programming, supported by a social and
behavior change communication plan. Key tasks are outlined below with an indicative breakdown
of days. However, exact parameters and timeline will be agreed on between the
consultant/agency and BISA team at the start of work:
