The prevalence of stunting under five in West Pasaman Regency from 17.8% in 2019 to 21% in 2020 makes the area with the highest stunting case in West Sumatra. Prevention and handling of stunting cases are dominantly centered in the district so that areas far from the district center are often unreachable. Especially during this pandemic, posyandu activities are hampered. The purpose of this study was to describe the stunting prevention strategy in West Pasaman Regency. Qualitative research was chosen because it is in line with the research objectives. The informants of this research were the Head of Public Health Center, Community Leader, Posyandu Cadre and Parents who have early childhood. The instruments are observation, interviews and documentation. Data analysis using data triangulation. The prevention strategy is to provide JKN to stunting toddlers, especially from poor families by including them in Jamkesda membership, providing latrines and clean water to poor families, collaborating with universities in providing education to parents. It can be concluded that there is a strategy implemented by the district government to reduce stunting cases.
