    At Permata Bunda health post in Manahan, Surakarta, Vice President Kalla witnessed the launch of an innovative tool -- a portable “Length Mat” -- initiated by Generasi, the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Villages, Disadvantaged Regions and Transmigration to measure the height of children under two years of age. Height, a critical benchmark of child growth, must be measured every three months for children less than two years old. The Length Mat gives health workers and parents a visual cue to see if a child is the right height for her/his age, and can be used to differentiate between female and male children. It is used by posyandu to detect stunting early and rapidly identify children who need special attention.
