    and the interrelationships between nutrition and social, cultural, economic and

  2. Compare and contrast different food systems, as well as the determinants and consequences of
    food insecurity at local, national and global levels (GA 3, 5)
  3. Assess nutritional status of a community or population, its food system and its food security, with
    an emphasis on identifying vulnerabilities and enhancing program sustainability (GA 2, 6, 8)
  4. Critically appraise interventions for addressing hunger, malnutrition, micronutrient
    deficiency and food security, especially in terms of program sustainability (GA 2, 4, 8)
  5. Integrate knowledge of nutrition and food security issues with the design of effective and
    culturally appropriate strategies or interventions to address these issues (GA 3, 6, 8)

In this report, students will select a diet-related condition, describe its determinants, aetiology and epidemiology including rates and at-risk groups (around 1000 words). Further, students will identify and critically analyse two programs intended to address the issue (1500…
