Abstract

One of innovative efforts to solve the problem of stunting and low birth weight in Banggai was by giving information to the prospective couples (brides and grooms) at the Office of Religious Affair (KUA) for letter of marriage approvement. The objective of the research was to know the level of knowledge of the prospective couples on nutrition, reproductive health, and the first 1000 days of life that was implemented at KUA. The research was conducted in three districts of Banggai. This was a cross-sectional study and 12 prospective couples who attended the one day training course started with pretest and educational material of reproductive health, nutrition, the first 1000 days of life and ended with posttest and analyzed by T-test. Age of participants were 24 years (25%), with education degree was senior high school (66.7%). There was a significant difference before and after course between knowledge about nutritious food (p=0.02) and knowledge of first 1000 days of life (p=0.039). Integrated Post of PcW in Banggai District has become an innovative intervention to increase the health literacy status of PcW. We need strong commitment, integrated multi sectoral stakeholder networks, comprehensive approaches, and interventions to improve the health of preconception women.
