Health Empowerment Through Nutrition
Nutrition plays a pivotal role in health. There is a gap in the nutritional status of most people today, which an apparently wholesome, balanced diet may fail to correct. This worldwide problem is severe in Africa. Even when a person consumes adequate calories and protein, if they lack one single micronutrient or a combination of vitamins and minerals, their immune system is compromised and infections take hold. HETN aims to research and apply appropriate nutritional intervention in the prevention and management of disease. Our projects include crèche feeding, nutritional support for orphans, vulnerable children and people living with AIDS and TB.
