Stunting increases with age, peaking at 37 percent among children months.

Stunting is greater among children in rural areas (30 percent) than urban areas (24 percent) with some regional Size: KB. Because HIV/AIDS negatively impacts on the food security status of households, it is crucial to identify how households respond to these impacts, in order to identify positive food security entry points and design strategies that can effectively alleviate food insecurity among the households of people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA).Cited by:   Results.

The prevalence of stunting was 49 %. The risk of stunting increased by 12 % among children from food insecure households. When the joint effect of food security and wealth status was assessed, the risk of stunting increased significantly by 19 and 22 % among children from moderately food insecure and severely food insecure households and ranked in the middle poor wealth by: needs of Uganda’s urban poor, particularly women.

Households that practice urban agriculture are also more likely to have access to a wider variety of nutritious foods such as vegetables and animal products. In Kampala, Uganda, urban agriculture has been linked with improved nutritional status in children.

Urban agriculture can also provide people with a primary or supplemental income. Poor neighborhoods may lack grocery stores, while corner stores and fast food joints permeate.
