The Millennium Challenge Corporation contracted with Mathematica to conduct a rigorous randomized evaluation of the Indonesian Community-Based Health and Nutrition to Reduce Stunting Project, also known as the Nutrition Project, to understand the project’s effects on stunting and related key maternal and child health outcomes. The baseline report presents the results of the study’s baseline data collection that took place between November 2014 and February 2015 and has two key objectives. The first is to confirm the randomized design of the evaluation by demonstrating equivalence across the treatment and control subdistricts (kecamatan). The second is to describe conditions at baseline and provide Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) and Millennium Challenge Account-Indonesia (MCA-I) with information that could improve the design and implementation of project activities.
