Background: West Nusa Tenggara (WNT) Province is an underdeveloped area of Eastern Indonesia amongst lowest ranked regions in human development in the country. The WNT Provincial government has initiated the “Golden Generation” program wherein optimal child development will be supported by scalable and sustainable policies and programs. One strategy is an integrated community approach focused on enhancing the household child stimulation environment and improving the quality and access to existing Early Childhood Development Centers (ECDC), and integrate them with community Health Extension Clinics (HEC) to optimize nutrition and health interventions. The impact will be assessed through a cluster randomized controlled trial in ~300villages over 2-years. We anticipate that 15,000 infants will be exposed to the intervention with an increase of 0.3 SD in mean developmental scores at 2 years.
