Africa Forum 2009: Sharing Integrated Solutions to HIV and Food and Nutrition Insecurity

  • PREVIEW
  • READ ARTICLE
  • OPEN PDF

ISSN

On a daily basis throughout sub-Saharan Africa, AF09 practitioners are faced with the fact that millions of people living with HIV (PLHIV) are becoming ill and dying prematurely, not only from the lack of advanced medicines but also because of health problems associated with poor nutrition, inadequate access to food, and preventable illnesses. While the region is home to only 10% of the world’s population, it hosts 60% of the global population living with HIV. Simultaneously, the region is defined by chronic food insecurity and malnutrition, with an estimated 206 million people chronically hungry and malnourished (UNAIDS, 2007). In addition, the 2008 global food crisis has pushed even more Africans into chronic hunger, making the United Nations Millennium Development Goal to reduce the number of people worldwide suffering from hunger by 50% increasingly remote. Food, nutrition and livelihood security are essential elements to successfully mitigate the impact of HIV/AIDS on individuals, families, and communities. HIV and malnutrition are inextricably linked at each level and require integrated solutions if impact is to be alleviated.
