Children and Stunting Phenomenon in Indonesia: Legal Perspective
Keywords:protection, law, stunting, perspective
Indonesia is a country with abundant natural resources, yet the case of malnutrition has gone on since a long
time ago. The non-serious handling of malnutrition causes various health conditions such as stunting. This
will influence economic capacities and productivity; thus, it becomes a serious threat. This research uses a
quantitative method, by using primary and secondary legal sources.
Stunting may have implications on children’s health both in the short and in the long run. It may influence the
country’s economy. The roles of the government, parents, family, and the society is not enough in protecting
children from stunting. The government has not maximally implied various programs in preventing and
handling stunting, thus the rate of stunting is not yet according to the standard given by WHO. This describes
some aspects and the citizens’ rights which are not yet fulfilled, including the rights to live, the right for
health, the right for children to grow, and other rights.
