The impact of HIV/AIDS on food assistance needs in sub-Saharan Africa has created what may or may not be seen as a new emergent variant of famine. This chapter provides a case study from Zambia that reveals contested strategies for both defining and confronting food insecurity and HIV/AIDS. Coordinated responses to the expanding HIV/AIDS health and nutrition crisis must be understood in light of the Zambia's resistance to genetically modified (GM) food aid during the 2002–03 food crisis. Overall the chapter will emphasize lessons learned and highlight best practices for enhancing food security in the face of HIV/AIDS.
