Hunger and Health : World Hunger Series 2007 Paperback / softback


Hunger and Health explores the multiple relationships between hunger and poor health, and how they affect the growth of individuals, physiologically and psychologically, constraining the development of nations both socially and economically.

Examining the profound effect that hunger has on health, including disease prevention and treatment, it gives special attention to access to quality food and healthcare, in particular for the marginalized and poor.

It also identifies critical junctures in the human life cycle when the benefits of reducing hunger and improving poor health have a profound impact.

It demonstrates how aligning of hunger and health interventions can offer proven solutions that reach those most in need, and contains compelling evidence which confirms that hunger and poor health are solvable problems today.

It encourages those involved in policy, programming and advocacy to take action to address some of the most urgent hunger and health problems.

Essential reading for anyone concerned about eliminating hunger. Published with the UN World Food Programme.
