HALLO SUMEDANG – In the quest to enhance the quality of technological efforts aimed at accelerating the reduction of stunting, the Regional Government of Sumedang has taken a significant stride by developing an integrated application, Simpati Jitu, in collaboration with ASIK Kemenkes RI.

Understanding Simpati Jitu: A Holistic Approach to Stunting Prevention

Simpati Jitu, also known as Simpati Generasi Kedua, is an evolved version of the initial Simpati application. Its primary objective is to serve as a comprehensive tool in ensuring the prevention of stunting from its roots among adolescents to its impact on infants. The application aims to disseminate crucial information to Nutrition Implementers and Champion Posyandu Facilitators regarding the operational techniques of Simpati Jitu, thereby serving as consultants to Human Development Cadres and Posyandu Cadres in the field.
