President of the Republic of Indonesia (Joko Widodo)

I came to Kepahiang General Regional Hospital to firstly ensure that stunting is also being handled at this hospital. Second, I am pleased that Kepahiang Hospital that is a type C hospital with 124 beds already has 13 medical specialists. Great, because [the number of] specialists is usually a problem at other general regional hospitals. There are already 13 here. This is good. I noticed that the hygiene and accreditation are perfect. Good. I suppose the hygiene is good as well. There was a problem about equipment for cataract surgery. I will send it immediately.

Reporter

Will there be additional budgets for stunting, Sir?

President of the Republic of Indonesia (Joko Widodo)

Please ask the Regent and Governor. The most important thing is that there is a decrease from 22 to 18. We must continue to reduce it so that we can reach our target of 14 [percent] in 2024.
