Agriculture for Improved Nutrition and Health is a research program of the CGIAR that is designed to strengthen the contribution of agricultural development to the health and nutrition of the poor and undernourished. The program conducts research and develops technologies and approaches in four complementary areas: value chains for enhanced nutrition and health, biofortification of staple crops, prevention and control of agriculture-associated diseases, and integrated programs and harmonized policies on agriculture, nutrition, and health. The program builds partnerships, including with the private sector, to develop, use and disseminate technologies and tools for improved food security, nutrition and health.
