Hidden Hunger – Interventions to improve health and nutrition

Like the video? Interested in applied research and development and human nutrition? Then check out the latest volume of the African Journal of Food, Agriculture, Nutrition, and Development’s Special Issue featuring the GL-CRSP’s ENAM project in Ghana. ENAM’s research and subsequent interventions enabled women to improve their livelihoods through collective action, microfinance, and training and education programs in health and nutrition.  These interventions helped ensure that ENAM’s lessons and benefits were passed onto families and children in the project villages, and that the project gained a foothold to continue after the research activities were concluded.  As a result, ENAM had a tremendous impact on livelihoods in their study community, was able to improve agriculture and nutrition extension policy in Ghana, and even helped secure a special center of excellence for nutrition near one of the project villages.  Check out AJFAND’s Volume 12 to learn about the project, escpecially their innovative methods and approaches for addressing development challenges through research.  Enjoy!
