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...

Iron biofortified beans and carotenoid enriched cassava are proposed as a solution to combat iron and vitamin A deficiencies, respectively, in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). To inform the need for biofortified foods we conducted a survey in 2014, in two provinces of the DRC, South Kivu and Kongo Central. Unexpectedly, women of reproductive age (WRA; 15-49 y) and their children (6-59 m) had a low prevalence of biochemical iron and vitamin A deficiency, based on ferritin and retinol bindi...

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...

Iodine deficiency disorders are estimated to affect over 1.9 million people worldwide. Iodine deficiency is especially serious for women during pregnancy and lactation because of the negative consequences for both mother and infant. The aim of this cross-sectional study was to determine the median urinary iodine concentration (UIC) as a population-level indicator of iodine status among rural women farmers of reproductive age (18–45 years) in the province of Prey Veng, Cambodia. A total of 450 wo...
