Land reform and the challenge of HIV/AIDS in Zimbabwe
MetadataShow full item record
Traditionally health and agriculture have received separate research and policy attention in Zimbabwe The Medical Research Council of Zimbabwe (MRCZ) and the Agricultural Research Council (ARC), though under the same umbrella Organisation- Research Council of Zimbabwe (RCZ), rarely conduct joint research programmes. It is then not surprising that agro-health literature for Zimbabwe is scarce. The advent of HIV/AIDS and the strong link the disease has with agricultural development including land reform calls for a paradigm shift towards joint policy analysis and strategies backed by joint research programmes. In this context, this chapter explores the link between HIV/AIDS (a health issue) and land reform (an agrarian issue).
