In Gaza, WFP Turns Women Into Community Nutritionists

Micronutrient deficiencies and obesity - the "double burden" of malnutrition facing many developing countries - are interlinked with poverty and are closely related to access to healthy, nutritious food, dietary habits and physical activity. WFP is tackling malnutrition in Palestine that is mostly a result of families’ inability to buy healthy and nutritious foods due to high food prices.

Overview

WFP’s mission in the West Bank and Gaza is to provide food assistance to vulnerable people and to work with local Palestinian authorities to strengthen safety nets and build the capacity of local institutions to anticipate and prepare for emergencies.
