Lessons Learned from Global Food and Nutrition Insecurity

As access to nutritious and safe food becomes increasingly unreliable, research on food insecurity is of critical importance both domestically and abroad. Scientists around the world are leading the way in testing innovative public health and policy strategies to address the reasons behind this trend and develop actions, treatments, and other effective interventions.

This innovative research has the potential to inform efforts in the U.S. where women and people in underserved communities are disproportionately affected by food insecurity with wide-ranging short- and long-term health consequences. Mutual learning between U.S. and international scientists can ideally lay the groundwork for the development of promising new interventions.
