District of Cicalengka was ranked as the 6th highest in terms of the prevalence of stunting in Bandung Regency as much as 33,7%. These numbers did not reach the World Health Organization (WHO) target, which is to reduce stunting numbers to less than 20%. It also did not reach the Bandung Regency Strategic Plan 2016-2021 target to reduce stunting prevalence to less than 14 %. Stunting was considered to be related to access to clean water.
