The FHI 360 Center for Nutrition is dedicated to bringing about positive changes in the actions of individuals, communities, and institutions that will improve the health and well-being of nutritionally vulnerable populations around the world. FHI 360 uses effective strategies from both the private and public sectors. Improving nutrition requires household, community, and political awareness and support. The FHI 360 Center for Nutrition provides leadership and technical services to organizations worldwide. The Center works at multiple levels with regional institutions, government agencies, the private sector, and community-based organizations.
FHI 360's Special Program for Food Security and Poverty Alleviation promotes broad-based and sustainable economic growth to reduce poverty, increase household food security, and improve human well-being. The Program uses advocacy, technical approaches, and practical tools to support agriculture, rural and urban income generation, micro finance, and natural resource management. The appropriate use of food assistance as a means to reduce vulnerability in poor households is one area of emphasis.
