Abstract

This paper provides an overview of attempts to focus an HIV/AIDS lens on the data generated during the Vulnerability Assessment Committee surveys in August 2002, December 2002 and April to June 2003. The objective was to further the understanding of the impacts of HIV/AIDS on household food insecurity in southern Africa. The final part of the paper includes suggestions for an improved approach and way forward.
