Solution

The Suryakanti Foundation Centre provides clinical services and education for young children with disabilities as well as parental instruction on how to care for children with a disability. In addition, the centre has developed innovative tools for early detection and intervention, particularly in rural areas.

Impact

  • Between 2014 and 2016 approximately 18,000 patients were served.
  • Some 3,000 women have received developmental training.

Goals

The Road to Health Card was disseminated as part of an early childhood development initiative in more than 12 provinces and 22 districts across Indonesia. The pictorial milestone itself and the attached manual for early stimulation has been distributed; and so far about 3,000 women have been trained in the home-based developmental milestone programme for young children, sponsored by UNICEF. In 2015 the pictorial milestone was adapted as a policy on holistic integrated early childhood development, but the implementation is still limited.
