       developed into interactive games, which minimizes one-way health   5. GAIN is currently developing
       information-sharing through lectures. In each Emo-Demo game,   an online application for
       a moment of shock or surprise is created, which encourages the   future Emo-Demo program
       participants to rethink their behavior and heighten certain emotions   implementations to support the
       attached to the target behavior. In several areas in Indonesia, for   Emo-Demo training
       example, a culture of breastfeeding, as opposed to giving formula
       milk, is perceived as behavior that signifies maternal love for
       their infants. This is the kind of perception that we use to move
       the mothers’ emotion by encouraging bonding with their infants
       (through breastfeeding).
       After successful implementation in five districts/city in East Java,
       the Emo-Demo program was then adapted for 38 other districts/
       cities. The expansion of the Emo-Demo program is seen as one
       of the ways of supporting the Ministry’s Healthy Life Community
       Movement (GERMAS) and the National Movement on Accelerating
       Nutrition Improvement in the First Thousand Days of Life (Gerakan
       1,000 HPK).
       To support the Emo-Demo training, the GAIN team is currently
       developing an interactive game or application for behavior change
       on nutrition for pregnant women and under-five children, with the
       aim to escalate the national adaptation of the Emo-Demo approach.
