Published on 31 October 2011

THE World Food Programme (WFP) is working with the ministry of health to implement a Food by Prescription programme for people living with HIV. WFP Country Director Karla Hershey said the programme changed the lives of people living with HIV. He said supplementary food for those who were malnourished helped them tolerate and adhere to their drug therapy so they could return to work and support their families.
