Integrated Agriculture-Health Based Initiative

Approximately one-fourth of Bangladeshis have limited availability, access to and consumption of adequate quantities of nutritious food the year round. Given the fact that food quantity and quality have the most direct links between agriculture, food security and health, investments need to be enhanced in agriculture so that small farmers, particularly women, can make a significant contribution to improve household food security and nutrition. Over the past 15 years, the decline in child undernutrition, particularly stunting,- has not kept pace with the decline in poverty.
