- Food by Prescription
HIV/AIDS has become one of the world’s most serious health and development challenges. Since the first cases were reported in 1981, more than 25 million people have died of AIDS worldwide, and another 33 million are currently living with the virus. The large majority of these people lives in sub-Saharan Africa and suffers the added burden of food insecurity and malnutrition. This study aims to build upon the existing—but limited—literature and will examine the effectiveness of a large-scale food supplementation program for PLWHA in a field setting in Ethiopia.
- Milk Matters
Children in pastoral/semi-pastoral areas in the horn of Africa are particularly vulnerable to increasingly frequent drought and to chronically high rates of acute malnutrition. The dominant response to this from the international community continues to be the delivery of large quantities of food aid each time rains fail and rates of acute malnutrition peak. Despite acceptance of the urgent need for risk reduction and drought mitigation, there is still little understanding of the causes of malnutrition, and which interventions in the medium to long term should be prioritized to improve the health and nutritional status of children in these settings.
