|Description||A Reference to Food Famine in Zimbabwe 2000-2004|
|Notes/Abstract||The current food famine in Zimbabwe can be classified as one of the disasters of our time and its impact on the vulnerable victims make it a public health concern. In this manner advocacy is a valuable tool in attempting to reverse this tragedy as well as charting up a long term solution.|
The research thesis identifies this Zimbabwean food insecurity and subsequent starvation as a social phenomenon with its deep rooted linkages in the political/ policy, and economic planning causes. This sharply departs from the official explanations of this disaster being an unavoidable natural phenomenon that has brought untold public health crisis on the entire nation. The research goes on to identify the way forward within the much emphasised multi-sectoral approach of community participation.
