English: Web Page


Systemic and chronic food insecurity have long plagued many parts of the world most severely affected by HIV/AIDS, and there is a complex relationship between the two issues. The Emergency Plan has a clear responsibility to support prevention, treatment and care for people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA), but comprehensively addressing issues of food insecurity is beyond the scope of the Emergency Plan. The purpose of this policy is to clarify the appropriate use of Emergency Plan funds for nutrition and food interventions. It is based on the Report on Food and Nutrition for People Living with HIV/AIDS , and tracks closely with the Emergency Plan's Preventive Care Package Guidance and the program guidance for Orphans and Other Vulnerable Children (OVCs).
