This study aims to test the hypothesis that a multi-sectoral agricultural and microfinance intervention designed to improve household food security, prevent antiretroviral treatment failure, and reduce co-morbidities among people living with HIV/AIDS will lead to improvements in the nutrition, health and development of children under 5 years old who reside in households of adults who participate in the Shamba Maisha intervention.
