In 2007, the government of Indonesia (GoI) launched an incentivized community block grant program, known as the National Community Empowerment Program—Healthy and Smart Generation (Generasi). In 2014, the Generasi program was renamed Bright Healthy Generation when its administration was transferred from the Ministry of Home Affairs (MoHA) to the Ministry of Villages, Disadvantaged Areas and Transmigration (MoV). The projects is consistent with both GoI priorities and the Sustainable Development Goals: reduce poverty, maternal mortality, and child mortality and ensure universal coverage of basic education.
This document describes the findings from an evaluation carried out in 2016/17 to determine Generasi’s longterm impact. It represents the fourth and final wave of evaluations; the first three waves were carried out between 2007 and 2010. The baseline survey took place from June to August 2007. The second wave was conducted from October 2008 to January 2009, after 15 to 18 months of Generasi implementation. The third survey was implemented from October 2009 to January 2010 after 27 to 30 months of project implementation. The most recent survey was carried out between October 2016 and February 2017 after nine years of program implementation. Over 46,000 household members, village heads, and school and health facility staff were surveyed in the final round.
This quantitative report is intended to complement the qualitative study of the same project titled "Indonesia Long-Term Generasi Qualitative Study"
