dc.description.abstract HIV/AIDS and food security are challenges so intertwined they cannot be compartmentalized. A study in Malawi, for example, found that the risk of sexually transmitted diseases increased during the “hungry season” when local residents face dwindling food supplies. To support themselves and their families, some resorted to high-risk transactional sex. RENEWAL was launched in 2001 at a conference on HIV/AIDS, rural livelihoods and food security in Malawi as a joint project between International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) and the International Service for Agricultural Research (ISNAR). These groups have become networks of networks, strengthening research capacity, and sharing information that informs policy. en
