Food, nutrition and HIV

May 21, 2007 – Brussels, CARE held a second roundtable meeting in cooperation with WFP and UNAIDS to discuss the links between food insecurity and HIV and AIDS.

Practitioners from Rwanda, Ethiopia and Zambia shared experiences in HIV and food security programming and provided tools for policy makers and programmers in Europe.

In 2007, we are one year into the “scale up” to universal access to HIV/AIDS prevention, treatment, care, and support, and as we approach the half way point to the Millennium Development Goals, it is an appropriate time to take stock of a comprehensive approach.

This second roundtable builds on last year’s discussion, which brought together high-level representation from the European Commission, relevant UN agencies, the European Parliament and the NGO community to share ideas about how to create greater linkages in this area and optimise the impact of existing interventions.
