Looking forward to our next conference on 23 October 2006 at the Royal Society, we commend the preparatory materials produced by the Food and Nutrition Technical Assistance Project (FANTA) as a set of downloadable presentations.{} Nutrition and HIV/AIDS: A Training Manual is a publication of the Regional Centre for Quality of Health Care (RCQHC) in Kampala, Uganda, the FANTA (Food and Nutrition Technical Assistance) Project, and the LINKAGES Project. Support for the development of this manual was provided by the Regional Economic Development Service Office/East and Southern Africa (REDSO/ESA) of the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and the United Nations University (UNU) in Tokyo.

The RCQHC is a regional quality of health care capacity development institution largely supported by REDSO/ESA in Nairobi and Makerere University in Kampala.

The FANTA Project is supported by the Office of Health, Infectious Disease, and Nutrition of the Bureau for Global Health at USAID, under the terms of Cooperative Agreement No. HRNA- 00-98-00046-00 awarded to the Academy for Educational Development (AED).

The LINKAGES Project is supported by GH/HIDN of USAID under the terms of Cooperative Agreement No. HRN-A-00-97-00007-00 and managed by AED.

The SARA Project, managed by AED, supports the work of the USAID Bureau for Africa, Office of Sustainable Development (AFR/SD), to improve policies and programs in health under contract No. AOT-C-00-99-00237-00.

The opinions expressed herein are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the views of USAID or UNU.
