This manual compiles the latest information about the role of food and nutritional support in HIV/AIDS care and treatment programmes for country offices of the WFP. It also strives to enable WFP field staff and other providers to become more familiar with the concepts and terminology related to HIV/AIDS treatment, care and support to answer commonly asked questions about food and nutritional support, and to share some of the experiences that various WFP country offices and partners have had while implementing pilot programmes providing food support as part of care and treatment.
