Hunger and Health draws on decades of pragmatic experience in alleviating food emergencies, and seeking to break the cycle of poverty and disease. It provides sound policy recommendations for nations and international standard-setting bodies seeking to meet the Millennium Development Goals.
We are deeply in debt to those who have written and contributed to Hunger and Health. Let this report, and written commitments to fair trade, land reform and improved agricultural practices, serve as the roadmap that we must all follow to make hunger in the 21st century be seen, first, as obscene and, second, as a global sickness for which we have, already, the cure.
