This research program aims to accelerate progress in improving the nutrition and health of poor people by exploiting and enhancing the synergies between agriculture, nutrition, and health through four key research components. The initiative will focus on opportunities to improve nutrition along value chains to increase the poor’s access to nutritious food; improve the availability, access, and consumption of nutrient-rich, biofortified staple foods for the poor; address food safety issues, including the control of zoonotic diseases and better management of agricultural systems to reduce health risks; and foster integration of agriculture, nutrition, and health development programs and policies.
