Purpose: In the RW Siaga Plus+ Program, Mercy Corps aims to address the complex underlying causes of malnutrition in urban poor settlements by building healthy physical environments, cultivating positive social contexts, and strengthening supportive economic relationships that facilitate access to and utilization of affordable adequate nourishment. This project will contribute to healthy physical environments in urban poor settlements by increasing access to clean water supplies and improved sanitation, services that are necessary to reduce the incidence of infectious disease, one of the main underlying causes of malnutrition. Building on the core capacities, government relationships, and lessons learned developed through the DAP program, this project will also continue to address the social constraints to improved nutrition, increasing awareness and social support for new behaviors through the existing Ministry of Health RW Siaga program. Both the hardware and the software interventions will be integrated with existing government priorities and programs, in particular the RW Siaga health program, allowing for significant building of capacity and improving the chances for government replication and scaling. The program will also be timed to coincide with the Musrenbang government budget allocation process, supporting the potential for communities to seek matching funds and promoting the sustainability of the project intervention
Goal: The overall aim of the project is improved health and nutrition of residents in poor urban communities in Jakarta and Bekasi through increased household access to clean water supplies and improved sanitation.
Access to water supply and sanitation services is crucial to preventing the infectious diseases that are a major cause of child mortality and malnutrition in Indonesia.
Objectives: By the end of the 24 month project, Mercy Corps expects that:
- 1,400 households (approximately 7,000 individuals) have access to and utilize improved sanitation facilities.
- 30,000 households within target area have access to safe water
- 30,000 caregivers of children under five practice appropriate hygiene and nutrition behaviors.
- All target communities take responsibility for at least one component of the integrated RW Siaga+ program in the second year of intervention, in preparation for replicating the full model after program end.
Project Area: RW Siaga+ is being implemented in three kelurahan in West Jakarta, and one kelurahan in Bekasi. The project areas were selected based on density, poverty, and vulnerability, as well as potential for integration into existing government programs. In West Jakarta: Kelurahan Pekojan and Kelurahan Duri Utara, both are located in kecamatan Tambora and in Kecamatan Cengkareng: Kelurahan Duri Kosambi. For Kota Bekasi, Kecamatan Bekasi Timur: Kelurahan Margahayu
