Abstract The Family Farms for the Future project has field-tested an enhanced homestead food production (EHFP) program to improve food security and nutritional status of subsistence farming households in south-east Asia. We report the estimated cost of delivering the program over ten-years in rural Cambodia, as well as the estimated monetary value of increased agricultural production and improvements in child health. Our analysis suggests that this type of EHFP program could not only improve chi...

The Cambodian diet is low in nutrient-dense animal-source foods. Enhanced homestead food production (EHFP) and aquaculture which increase availability of nutrient-dense foods are promising interventions to improve dietary intake. This study examined the effect of EHFP with or without aquaculture on dietary intake and prevalence of inadequate intake of select nutrients among women and children living in rural Cambodia compared to controls. In a registered cluster randomized controlled trial in Pr...

Background: Undernutrition remains a public health problem in Cambodia. To address this, Helen Keller International has implemented an enhanced homestead food production (EHFP) program that provides agricultural inputs and, nutrition, hygiene, and gender empowerment training. This research evaluates the impact of EHFP on dietary intake of women and children and, household food production. Methods: This two-year pragmatic delayed cluster randomized controlled trial will be conducted in 600 househ...

Global standardization of ferritin assays is lacking, which could have direct implications on the accurate measurement and comparability of ferritin concentration and iron deficiency (ID) prevalence rates in at-risk populations.We measured serum ferritin concentrations using four immunoassays: the s-ELISA and the AxSYM™ analyzer were compared among 420 non-pregnant Cambodian women; the Centaur® XP analyzer, s-ELISA, and AxSYM™ analyzer were compared among a subset of 100 Cambodian women; and the...
