Stunting, Scoring Predictor, Epidemiological Triad


The scoring predictor of stunting is intended to predict or assess the risk of a child experiencing stunting. The epidemiological triad approach includes three important elements, namely the host, agent, and environment related to stunting. The steps in developing a scoring predictor of stunting include identifying variables and data, analysing data to understand the relationships between variables, developing predictive models, and model validation to ensure model performance and accuracy. After the model is developed, implementation and evaluation of the model become important in applying the model on a wider scale as well as monitoring the performance and effectiveness of the model in preventing and overcoming stunting. The ultimate goal of the scoring predictor of stunting is to reduce the prevalence of stunting and improve the quality of life for children by preventing the adverse effects that this condition of malnutrition may cause in the long term.
