Mia traveled to Tanzania to examine the influence of gender dynamics on health in rural settings. The Homestead Agriculture and Nutrition Initiative (HANU) is an integrated, gender-sensitive, agriculture and nutrition intervention that tackles food sustainability among the rural poor. Mia explored the extent to which agricultural interventions like HANU, aimed at improving household nutrition and health, may be contributing to women’s empowerment in the intervention community.
