Why is it important to locate health in an agricultural context? And agriculture in a health context? Primarily, because agriculture and health are intrinsically linked, and these linkages have significant implications for the well-being of people around the world, especially poor and vulnerable people.

The CGIAR Agriculture and Health Research Platform (AHRP) aims to improve the health of the poor, reduce malnutrition and food insecurity, and promote pro-poor agricultural development, by encouraging closer collaboration between the agriculture and health sectors. It will focus both on illuminating existing synergies between the two sectors and also on identifying where and how synergies can be improved, thus improving health and poverty outcomes for developing countries. The emphasis is on communicating the need for these synergies, dissemination of important research and publications, and fostering partnerships between the health and agricultural sectors.
