Combatting Poverty and Malnutrition in the Kigezi Sub-Region in Southwestern Uganda: The Rabbit Breeding Project

Poverty and poor nutrition remain key hindrances to attainment of an integrated primary healthcare delivery in Uganda. Uganda suffers from high rates of child malnutrition, of which 80 percent is due to a lack of protein in the diet. This study, funded by the Havey Institute for Global Health, aims to combat poverty and malnutrition in the Kigezi sub-region in Southwestern Uganda via rabbit breeding to promote protein intake, income generation and food security in selected households.
