Food as Medicine
In low- and middle-income countries, around 45% of deaths among children under 5 years of age are linked to undernutrition. In East Africa alone, 7 million children are experiencing stunted growth due to malnutrition. Nutrition is an essential component of adequate primary care. Yet, health centers have long struggled with stock outs of fortified porridge, and commercial products are often too expensive for rural families to access.
Since 2015, TIP’s program has provided more than 7 million servings of porridge to more than 100,000 Rwandans.
The problems we face in health care today are not just in Rwanda. They are everywhere. Our goal is to improve the nutrition status of 600,000 children throughout East Africa by 2023.
