The MITRA (Micronutrient Supplementation for Reducing Mortality and Morbidity in Indonesia) program is a partnership between the governments of Indonesia, Australia and Canada, facilitated by Nutrition International. It is an integrated micronutrient supplementation program being implemented in 20 districts of East Java and East Nusa Tenggara (ENT) provinces, centering its work on four micronutrients – Vitamin A, Zinc, Iron and Folic Acid - with a focus on their key role in improving Maternal, Newborn and Child Health (MNCH). The overall objective of the program is to improve access to health services for both pregnant women and caregivers of children under five to improve health outcomes. Ultimately, these health outcomes will be accomplished through improved coverage and adherence to IFA supplementation among pregnant women, Vitamin A supplementation (VAS) to children under five, and the use of zinc and ORS in the treatment of childhood diarrhoea. In order to achieve the goal of the program, the program strategy components fall under three categories (i) enabling environment; (ii) provision or supply chain; and (iii) consumption and include:
Funding for this program began in August 2015 and will end in September 2018.
