Haiti: semer les graines d’une meilleure nutrition

“Haiti”, “nourriture” et “nutrition” sont des mots generalement non associés dans le cadre d’une déclaration optimiste, bien au contraire. Cependnat, aù moment ou nous commémorons la Journee mondiale de l’alimentation, je crois qu’Haïti a contribuer fortement à trouver, par elle-même, une solution durable à son problème de malnutrition constant.

Ceci peut paraitre comme étant le secret le miex gardé du monde, mais il est en partie le résultat de l’attitude de nombreuses personnes, y compris nous occasionnellement, qui mettons l’emphase sur les maux d’Haiti plutôt que sur ses progrès réalisés.

Haiti: merging nutrition and agriculture innovations to progress from crisis to stability

“Haiti” and “food” and “nutrition” are words not usually seen together as part of an optimistic statement, rather the opposite. But as we commemorate World Food Day I believe there is a lot that Haiti can bring to the table to find a sustainable solution to its stubborn malnutrition problem.

This may sound like the world’s best kept secret, but it is partly the result of people, including ourselves sometimes, focusing on Haiti’s ailments rather than its progress.

 Honduras:are high food prices fueling child malnutrition?

 

Recently, I was once again confronted with a puzzling situation I have seen too often during the course of my career: flat growth curves for children. This especially worried me in light of the current context of rising food prices and global economic instability, and the impact that previous crises have had on the nutritional status of mothers and children.
