New ACF Publication: Hunger & HIV, From Food Crisis to Integrated Care
Action Against Hunger, the international humanitarian agency, announces its latest research publication, Hunger & HIV: From Food Crisis to Integrated Care.
As part of a broader humanitarian effort to address the AIDS pandemic, Action Against Hunger works to mitigate the impact of HIV/AIDS on already vulnerable communities. HIV has complicated the treatment of severe malnutrition, challenging more traditional approaches and protocols and requiring substantial investments in field-based research to enhance our understandings of hunger and HIV.
This new publication makes an important contribution to understanding the linkages between HIV/AIDS and hunger by highlighting Action Against Hunger's vital research in Malawi.
