GLOBAL NUTRITION REPORT, Dimana Posisi Indonesia?

Jejaring Gizi Indonesia - Thu, 02/12/2015 - 17:35

Jakarta, GIZINET (12/2). Penyebarluasan informasi tentang Global Nutrition Report (GNR) dilaksanakan tanggal 9 Februari 2015 lalu di Bappenas dalam puncak peringatan Hari Gizi Nasional ke-55. Dalam acara ini selain para undangan dari pemerintahan, dunia usaha, akademisi, organisasi profesi, LSM dan NGO serta mitra pembangunan, hadir pula Menteri Koordinator Bidang Pembangunan Manusia dan Kebudayaan, Menteri Kesehatan, dan Menteri Perencanaan Pembangunan Nasional / Kepala Bappenas.

Paparan GNR disampaikan secara langsung oleh Dr. Lawrence Hadad dan Prof. Dr. Endang L. Achadi yang merupakan bagian dari tim pakar penyusun. GNR sendiri telah di launching secara resmi November 2014 lalu pada International Conference on Nutrition (ICN) ke 2 di Roma-Italia, yang merupakan seri pertama laporan tahunan yang menjelaskan kemajuan perbaikan gizi di seluruh dunia. Dalam GNR 2014 yang dapat diunduh langsung di www.globalnutritionreport.org digambarkan data dan informasi terkait gizi secara global, dan berisikan pengalaman, best practices, serta dilengkapi dengan country profile dari 193 negara anggota PBB.

Membahas secara khusus tentang posisi Indonesia dalam GNR, Prof. Dr. Endang L. Achadi dalam paparannya menyampaikan berbagai tantangan yang dihadapi Indonesia diantaranya: Indonesia termasuk dalam 17 negara diantara 117 negara yang saat ini memiliki 3 masalah gizi (stunting, wasting, dan overweight); Indonesia termasuk dalam 47 negara dari 122 negara yang mempunyai masalah stunting pada balita dan anemia pada WUS; dan cakupan 3 intervensi (IMD, ASI Eksklusif, TTD bumil) di Indonesia masih terbilang rendah.

Menilik potensi yang kita punya, peluang besar untuk penanggulangan masalah gizi diatas sebetulnya sangat besar dan bahkan beberapa intervensi spesifik dan sensitif yang direkomendasikan sudah dilakukan, namun cakupannya belum optimal. Dikatakan bahwa untuk mendongkraknya diperlukan kesatuan visi dan platform semua stakeholders terkait melalui penguatan koordinasi dan sinergi berbagai pemangku kepentingan untuk intervensi spesifik gizi, serta lingkungan yang mendukung dari semua stakeholders untuk intervensi sensitive gizi yaitu sektor pemerintah terkait (pertanian, perikanan, dikbud, BKKBN, agama, perdagangan, perindustrian, dsb), swasta, LSM, masyarakat, serta mitra pembangunan internasional.
