Agriculture-health linkages / Michael Lipton, Emanuel de Kadt
ResumenAddresses the difficult question of how agricultural policies and projects can be modified to improve the health of populations. Two sets of problems are identified: those in developing countries where a family's farm output largely determines what children eat, and those in industrialized countries where agricultural products may cause or accelerate severe and often fatal disease. Noting that health personnel rarely have a say in the formulation of agricultural policies, the book concentrates on the identification of conceptual, administrative, and political issues that can be used to shape farm and other agricultural policies with a clear regard for their impact on health. To this end, the authors point out possible areas for action so that personnel from different sectors can initiate a dialogue and define their respective roles and options. Throughout, concrete examples are used to help readers understand how health-nutrition targets can be formulated and how their effects on health can be predicted and monitored
