A diversified approach to fighting food insecurity and rural poverty in Malawi

The Malawi Red Cross Society introduced an integrated foods security pro­gramme in 2011 in order to contribute to the government’s national strategy on food security. The National Society has been implementing food security projects for over a decade, particularly under programmes which are aimed at supporting households and community-food production for people living with HIV and children orphaned by AIDS. The programmes implemented food secu­rity projects by also addressing issues around sustainable livelihoods, water and sanitation, community-based health care, and HIV and AIDS awareness raising activities. The aims of the community-based project were to improve food diversity, reduce malnutrition and increase income generation. Published in 2013.
