    Abstract

    Malnutrition is a public health problem that calls for serious attention in Sragen district, Central Java. In 2006 the prevalence of under-nutrition among children under five years old was 11.99%. Dietary supplementation program (PMT) for children of poor families for 90 days duration has been administered since the economic crisis in 1998. However, there has been no scientific study that evaluated the effectiveness of the PMT in reducing the prevalence of under-nutrition. This study aimed to examine the effectiveness of PMT in reducing the prevalence of undernutrition in Sragen district. This study was analytic by use of retrospective cohort study. The study was conducted from July to September 2007. The target population was children under five years old with under-nutrition who lived in Sragen district. Forty children under five years old with under-nutrition of poor families, and 80 similar children with under-nutrition of non-poor families were selected by exhaustive sampling. The indicator for nutrition status was weight for age (WAZ). The data was analyzed by use of Chi Square, with OR as the measure of effectiveness, The analysis performed under SPSS v. 15 program. Results of the study showed different proportion of under-nutrition among children under five years old after PMT administration. Children who received PMT were 4 times more likely to have good nutrition status than those without PMT (OR= 4.25; X2= 9.71; p=0.002). This study concludes that the administration of PMT is effective in reducing the prevalence of under-nutrition among children under five years old in Sragen district. It was suggested to continue the PMT in the future. Key words: effectiveness, dietary supplementation program, children under five years old
