Food Assistance Programming in the Context of HIV (2007)
As the links between food insecurity and HIV are better understood, there is increasing acknowledgement in the
development community of the need to integrate food and nutritional support into a comprehensive response.
This document, a joint publication of the World Food Programme (WFP) and FANTA, provides guidance on improving
the design and implementation of food security programs that respond to HIV-related challenges and
of HIV programs that utilize food and food-related activities to achieve HIV-related outcomes.
WFP and FANTA produced the guide in collaboration with Technical Assistance to NGOs (TANGO) International
and with the input and participation of more than 100 food security or HIV practitioners from more than 30
nongovernmental, bilateral, and multilateral organizations.
The guide is for program directors, program advisors, and senior program managers who are directly involved in the analysis
and formulation of food assistance strategies and country program activities at headquarters, regional, and field offices.
Support for the development of this guide was provided by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID)
Office of Food for Peace; Office of Health, Infectious Diseases, and Nutrition; Office of HIV/AIDS;
Bureau for Africa; and USAID/East Africa.
The guide is available to download in its entirety or by chapter(s).
