The role of labour in household food security: implications of AIDS in Africa uri icon

abstract

  • In increasingly diversified and liberalized economies, understanding the potential for, and constraints to, achieving food security through the labour market is as important for food policy design as understanding the food market. In economies severely affected by AIDS, which impacts directly on labour supply, productivity and options, understanding the paths by which the disease may compromise food security at both household and national levels is crucial to making informed decisions about the allocation of scarce public resources.
