Summary:

This report describes an analysis of the clinical and household welfare effects of a World Food Programme (WFP) Zambia household food assistance programme targeting HIVinfected individuals on antiretroviral therapy (ART). The assessment utilized an intervieweradministered questionnaire in combination with participant clinical data from the national ART programme database. Four hundred participants were interviewed: two hundred food beneficiaries at 4 Lusaka district public-sector ART clinics participating in the food assistance programme and two hundred controls from 4 non-participating clinics.

The focus of this study was the association between household food assistance and:

1. Patient immune status, general health, and ART adherence; and

2. Household economic welfare, labour productivity, and child welfare.
