By addressing an absence of implementation studies, this master thesis aims to
examine the implementation of the FRESH health policy in schools in Lombok, Indonesia. The method used is a qualitative field study based on empirical material consisting of interviews with representatives from implementing organizations and teachers designated to be “FRESH coordinators” in schools. By utilizing dimensions from the Multiple Governance Framework, the World Food Programme showed to have a leading role within the process, in addition to the performance of socialization, training and monitoring in coordination with two local NGOs and sub-district level of government. A goal oriented approach indicated that teachers had implemented activities assigned to them, although not strictly after given guidelines but instead within structures already familiar to them. Concepts from the theory on “street-level bureaucrats” showed not to cohere with the working conditions of teachers involved with FRESH in Lombok, one explanation being that FRESH to a large extent was integrated with already existing health promotion initiatives, which facilitated the process. The results also showed that commitment played a crucial part in why the policy was implemented in a certain way, in addition to students playing a prominent part in the process –both as beneficiaries and implementers.
