And the data analysis technique is done by data reduction (data reduction), data display (data presentation), and conclusion drawing (verification). The results of the study indicate that the implementation of government policies to accelerate the reduction of integrated stunting in Sukabumi has been going well as a whole. This is supported by the commitment of the Central and Regional Governments to support this program with the support of the allocation of funds from the APBN (national budget) and APBD (local budget) in its implementation. In addition, support from human resources and related parties in the implementation in the field has been running optimally, but there are still many people who do not understand the program to accelerate the reduction of stunting such as the low level of public knowledge of parenting for children and toddlers so that its implementation still not optimal.
