This research endeavors to conduct a thorough investigation into pediatric health in the Papua and West Papua regions of Indonesia, employing a multifaceted approach that integrates data from various sources including RISKESDAS, SUSENAS, and remote sensing indicators such as NDVI (Normalized Difference Vegetation Index) and PDSI (Palmer Drought Severity Index). By amalgamating socio-economic data, health metrics, and environmental variables, the study seeks to achieve a comprehensive understanding of the factors influencing child health. Advanced analytical tools, notably the Generalized Linear Latent Variable Model (GLLVM), are utilized to conduct a dual-analysis of the intricate interplay between health indicators and environmental variables. The incorporation of NDVI and PDSI, derived from remote sensing data, introduces an ecological dimension to the investigation, facilitating a nuanced exploration of the impact of vegetation health and drought severity on pediatric health outcomes. This interdisciplinary research endeavors to unveil correlations, patterns, and potential causal relationships between environmental factors and the prevalence of various health issues among children, including pneumonia, acute respiratory infections, diarrhea, underweight, and stunting. The anticipated results aim to not only enrich our understanding of pediatric health in Papua and West Papua but also to contribute to broader discussions concerning the complex connections between health, socio-economic conditions, and environmental variables. By integrating remote sensing data with health and socio-economic datasets, this study provides a comprehensive perspective, enabling a more robust assessment of the determinants of child well-being. The insights gleaned from this research are poised to have significant implications for policymakers, environmental scientists, and public health professionals, informing the development of strategies aimed at enhancing child health outcomes in these regions. Furthermore, this study underscores the importance of initiatives like the Free Lunch and Milk Program proposed by Prabowo and Gibran in the 2024 Indonesian Presidential Election, emphasizing the critical role of holistic approaches in addressing the multifaceted challenges surrounding child health and well-being.
