The Fight Against Hunger and Malnutrition

As is commonly presented, nutritional status reflects the interplay of food consumption, access to health and sanitation, and nutrition knowledge and care practices. Social protection programs typically increase income (linked to food access), as well as influence the timing and, to a degree, the control of this income. Additionally, such safety net programs may achieve further impact on nutrition by fostering linkages with health services or with sanitation programs, and specifically, through activities that are related to nutrition education or micronutrient supplementation. This chapter looks at what might be the expected from such programs and reviews some of the evidence from specific transfer programs.
