This publication is only available in Indonesian


  • The COVID-19 pandemic has generally reduced the number of visits to nutrition and maternal and child health (MCH) services, especially basic immunization and weighing services for children under five years of age, in Kota Jakarta Timur, Kabupaten Bekasi, Kabupaten Maros, Kabupaten Badung, and Kota Kupang.
  • Changes in the implementation of nutrition and MCH services in the five regions have referred to the guidelines for nutrition and MCH services during the COVID-19 pandemic from the Ministry of Health.
  • Access to technology and the internet supports the continued implementation of monitoring and consultation on nutrition and MCH services during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, digital inequality between regions in Indonesia could widen the gap in the health status of mothers and children after the COVID-19 pandemic ends.
