March 2014: Research Visit to Uganda

Home

Poor nutritional status and food insecurity is associated with poor immune responses and adverse health outcomes among children and adults infected with and receiving treatment for HIV. Although Uganda’s response to HIV/AIDS has been recognised to be relatively effective, there are emerging issues which require urgent attention.

NOURISH (Nutrition and treatment outcomes: development of a Ugandan-Irish HIV/Nutrition Research Cluster) aims to increase our understanding of the complex interactions between food security (i.e. when all people at all times have access to sufficient, safe, nutritious food to maintain a healthy life), HIV/AIDS and socio-economic factors, to impact intervention programmes at national level and benefit the poor in Uganda.
