“The first line of defense”, In World Food Program: why food and nutrition matter in the fight against HIV/AIDS (Rome, 2003)
I was in Malawi and met with a group of women living with HIV. As I always do when
I meet people with HIV/
AIDS and other
community groups, I
asked them what their
highest priority was.
Their answer was clear
Not care, not drugs for treatment, not relief from stigma, but food.
