CARE’s Nutrition Plus Team Capacity and Experience

Lack of nutritious food is a fundamental barrier to health and wellbeing for the most vulnerable, poor and marginalized people in the world. Because of the complex relationships between agriculture, food security and nutrition, improving nutrition in an integrated way is one of the most cost-effective investments we can make — the ultimate form of prevention for disease, providing a healthy environment for learning and attacking poverty at its roots. Small improvements can open doors for new opportunities not only in terms of survival, but in terms of education, economic productivity and life goals.
