Food is medicine

People with HIV need extra nutrition to improve their immunity and also to tolerate their medications.  So it's great to hear of any effort to increase people's access to food.

Abraham Mutluri from the NGO VMM-CHAHA in Andhra Pradesh writes that they are encouraging people to start kitchen gardens, providing seeds and other support. And in Bangalore, organisations are asking for nutrition to be on the political agenda in the Lok Sabha elections. The Bangalore HIV and AIDS Forum is campaigning on the need for nutritional supplements for people taking ART. (Source:AIDSINDIA)
