One of the first events of its kind, the Forum assembled 220 delegates from 20 countries for a practitionerled, non-academic conference. Its purpose was to showcase new ideas on integrated food and nutrition security and HIV/AIDS programs from affected areas of Africa. Following the World Health Organization Consultation (April 10–13, 2005), and the International Food Policy Research Institute Conference on HIV/AIDS and Food and Nutrition Security (April 14–16, 2005), Project Concern International (PCI) became aware of the escalating demand to exchange experience from the perspective of field practitioners. The event in Lusaka was organized with the goal of providing a platform to build relationships and enable collaborative learning and to improve and expand service delivery at the community and household level. Thus, the Forum allowed and encouraged participants to share their expertise with one another. It enabled them to discover practical solutions for improving food and livelihood security in their own communities. Over the five days of the conference, moreover, participants identified the priorities and changes needed at all levels in order to make the concept of integrated programming a reality
