HIV, Food Security and Nutrition Resource
This resource focuses on the inter linkages between food security, nutrition and HIV. It is targeted at Trócaire’s Programme Officers and Trócaire’s partners working on HIV programmes and/or Livelihood Programmes. The resource aims to strengthen understanding of the relationship between food security, nutrition and HIV using information drawn from a wide range of resources referenced throughout the document. It outlines possible programme responses for consideration and shares examples drawn from Trócaire HIV and Livelihoods programmes in different countries.
Sections 1 and 2 of this resource outline the importance of integrating food security and nutrition into HIV programme design, consider the practicalities of implementation and share examples provided by Trócaire Programme Officers and Partners of how it’s been done.
Sections 3 and 4 consider the related reality that effective food security and nutrition strategies within Livelihood Programmes, must be HIV-sensitive, provide programme guidelines on how this can be done and share some examples for you to consider.
By bringing together the shared experiences of Trócaire’s HIV and Livelihoods programmes around the common issues of Food Security and Nutrition we hope to promote and facilitate cross programme learning. Section 5 provides a template for people to use for documenting examples to share with others.
