In its efforts to improve nutrition, FAO is assisting member countries in developing and supporting community-based food and nutrition programmes. The FAO believes that it is important to strengthen these programmes on the understanding that nutritional status is the most important outcome indicator to measure progress against poverty and malnutrition. To help in this process, the FAO has commissioned an in-depth assessment and analysis of nine case studies (three programmes each from the regions of Africa, Asia and Latin America) in addition to three desk reviews to search for best practices

Each year, cancer affects more than 10 million people worldwide and kills 6 million, even though many cases are preventable or treatable through early detection. Without effective control of the disease, these figures will increase significantly, especially in developing countries. This publication, now in its second edition, explains how national cancer control programmes integrated with existing health systems represent the best available method for the control of cancer, including prevention, treatment and palliation. It discusses the appropriateness of particular technologies and considers

Hard-core cartels are the most egregious violations of competition law.
