Women, Village Chickens, and Animal Source Food Consumption in Timor-Leste

In this blog, Johanna Wong, a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Sydney, shares research findings from Timor-Leste about the promoters and inhibitors of animal source food consumption in rural households. Johanna’s research investigates the links between village chickens, maternal and child diets, and nutritional status in Timor-Leste. Increasing village chicken and egg production using a gender-sensitive approach has great potential to improve the nutritional status of women and children in vulnerable households.
