The SDGs Will Require Integrated Agriculture, Nutrition, and Health at the Community Level

Child malnutrition is a complex issue requiring integrated approaches across sectors such as agriculture, nutrition, and health. While national-level efforts are underway in many countries, there is little information on how to integrate at the community level. This paper offers a community-based approach using cadres of agricultural and community health workers. Agriculture is an important driver of nutritional and health outcomes, and improving child health will require practical solutions for integration that can add to the evidence base.
