Jakarta, August 30th, 2022 - PT Kalbe Farma Tbk (Kalbe), through its subsidiary PT Sanghiang Perkasa (KALBE Nutritionals) and its product PRENAGEN LOVA, a nutrition product for adult women with complete nutrients and affordable price, has conducted a care for stunting through a collaboration with the East Java Regional Government and Development Coordination Agency, Third Division. The program, aimed to decrease the stunting rate, will be held for five months, starting from August 24th, 2022 in Malang, East Java.
“KALBE Nutritionals is committed to assist the government in decreasing the stunting rate in Indonesia. As a company that provides high quality nutrients, we believe that daily nutrient consumptions are essential for the prevention of stunting,” as stated by the Group Business Unit Head Woman of Nutrition, Sinteisa Sunarjo.
Sintesa then explained that increasing the amount of nutritional needs at 1000 HPK, which was during the pregnancy and breastfeeding stages until child reached the age of two, must become an important foundation for early preventions of stunting, as well as to create brighter generations that could grow and develop well.
As Sinteisa explained, “The care for stunting by Kalbe Nutritionals in collaboration with the Regional Government of Malang can hopefully help the daily nutrient consumptions for mothers in order to decrease the stunting rate together in Malang and to contribute in providing health to the nation.”
The care for stunting by PRENAGEN LOVA was conducted by giving around 4000 boxes of PRENAGEN LOVA to 68 pregnant women in Malang for the next five months.
Speaking of stunting, the 2018 Baseline Health Research data (Riskesdas) suggested that East Java was included among 18 provinces with high prevalences of stunting. Another data from the East Java Public Health Office in 2020 also revealed that there had been 9.882 stunting cases on toddlers in Malang.
“The stunting condition has gained a special attention from the East Java Regional Government, even from the Governor of East Java who conducted the Nawa Bhakti Satya program for creating “a smarter and healthier East Java”. Therefore, KALBE Nutritionals and its product PRENAGEN LOVA can help to fulfill the nutritions for pregnant women in Malang and to decrease the stunting rate,” as stated by Dr. Ir. Wahyu Hidayat, MM, the Regional Secretary of Malang.
PRENAGEN LOVA has two flavors, Chocolate and Strawberry, which can be consumed at least one glass per day, and contains various nutritional values that are adjusted for the daily needs of pregnant women. These include folic acid for the growth of fetus and formation of red blood cells, iron as a hemogoblin component in the red blood cells to transfer oxygen into the body, protein as an important component to grow and develop the fetus’ organs, calcium for the formation of bones of the mother and the baby, fish oil for formation of the baby’s brain and to increase the mother’s energy, and katuk leaves for the protein sources in forming several tissues in the fetus and expediting the breast milk.
