Researchers team up to provide new hope for childhood hunger
Date:7/27/2009

ffective therapeutic feeding regimen for home-based therapy for severe childhood malnutrition.
  • Develop effective strategies to treat severe malnutrition in young children with AIDS in sub-Saharan Africa.
  • Become a premier education and resource site for students and trainees at all levels in international pediatric nutrition and use of plant science to enhance human health.
  • Raise awareness in public and scientific circles about the consequences of childhood malnutrition and how to alleviate it.

    Medium Term Goals: 5-10 years

    • Develop a more effective management protocol for in-patient treatment of severe malnutrition.
    • Deploy an effective supplemental feeding regimen for moderate malnutrition and a more cost-effective therapeutic feeding regimen for home-based therapy for severe childhood malnutrition.
    • Deploy home-based therapy with RUTF for severe childhood malnutrition throughout the world.
    • Identify and improve two additional staple crops that will enhance human health in Africa, demonstrating the improvement in the greenhouse and during in-country studies.
    • Test and validate improved cassava varieties in Nigeria and Kenya in limited, controlled trials.

    Long Term Goals: beyond 10 years

    • Deploy effective strategies to treat severe malnutrition in young children with AIDS in sub-Saharan Africa.
    • Disseminate improved cassava in Africa on a broad scale.
    • Introduce two additional improved crops in limited, controlled trials.
