Abstract : Stunting (short stature in toddlers) is one of the most crucial nutritional problems, particularly in poor and developing countries. Stunting is also a form of growth and development failure that causes linear growth disorders in toddlers due to the accumulation of long-term nutritional inadequacies from pregnancy to 24 months of age. This research was conducted in January 2023 - February 2023. Methods research is a quasi-qualitative exploring the effectiveness of stunting policies through in-depth interviews, observation, and documentation. The results of this study showed that the communication of the policy implementation of the stunting prevention program in Enrekang Regency has been running well, in terms of the quantity of human resources available at the regency level. The implementation of the stunting prevention program policy has been running quite well and in accordance with Presidential Regulation Number 72 of 2021 on Accelerating Stunting Reduction. The organizational structure has been formed with a clear division of labor, but there was not a Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) that specifically regulates the implementation of stunting convergence actions. The transmission of information from policy makers to policy implementers has been conveyed clearly and consistently but still needs to be maximized, it is considered to be fulfilled, but in some regional apparatus organizations it is still limited, namely in the health sector (nutritionists), related OPDs to village governments in implementing the stunting prevention program in Enrekang Regency is considered quite good.
