Malnutrition is still one of the main problems in Situbondo Regency. This paper aims to describe the implementation of a Home for Nutrition Recovery (HNR) on the handling of malnutrition in the District of Situbondo. HNR is a nutritional rehabilitation center with comprehensive services for malnourished children, iodine deficiency disorder, additional preventive screening and counseling for pregnancy. Opened every day, HNR activities include nutritional status checks, nutrition education, medical examinations, therapy, child nutrition therapy, and screening for iodine deficiency disorders. Routine screening of children from various areas in Situbondo is held once a week every Wednesday, and the screening of pregnant women is conducted every Thursday. Patients treated at HNR range from having undernutrition status, overnutrition and malnutrition with congenital abnormalities or growth defects. The number of malnourished children visits have increased annually; there were 1,013 visits in 2014, 1074 in 2015, and 1174 in 2014. Nutrition surveillance is also growing; there was malnutrition in children in as many as 251 cases in 2014, 238 cases in 2015, and 261 cases in 2016.
