Evaluasi Program Pemberian Makanan Tambahan Untuk Penanganan Gizi Buruk Balita di Kabupaten Aceh Utara
This study describes the evaluation of the supplementary feeding program for handling malnutrition under five in the North Aceh District. The purpose of this study was to explain the evaluation of the supplementary feeding program in handling cases of malnourished toddlers as well as the factors that became obstacles in efforts to handle malnutrition under five in North Aceh district. This research was conducted in North Aceh district by taking samples at Babah Buloh Health Center located in the west end and the Seunuddon health center, which is located in the east end of the district. This research is important to do because North Aceh district is the highest area in cases of malnutrition in the subject of this study, the informants were the North Aceh District Health Office, Babah Buloh Health Center, and Seunuddon Health Center, North Aceh District, and other relevant stakeholders. The research method used is qualitative. Data collection techniques used are direct interviews, research documentation, or literature. The theory used in this research is program evaluation. The results showed that the evaluation of the supplementary feeding program for handling malnutrition had been carried out with prevention efforts and the provision of additional food. Still, the provision of additional food for toddlers has not been touched in all areas due to limitations, a lack of experts in the field of nutrition, and even almost all health centers in Indonesia. North Aceh District does not have a nutritionist, and there is still weak communication between the puskesmas and the North Aceh District Health Office, so cases of malnutrition under five in North Aceh District continue to increase.
