Abstract/OtherAbstract:
This study was designed to review the food security of the country and to study the household food insecurity of poor households in relation to the poverty level. Cross-sectional survey design was used to assess the perceptions of socio-economic changes, food insecurity in national and household levels, and their health impact. A total of 731 poor households were involved in our study. One third of the total households were in a status of severe food insecurity with hunger. Analysis on the risk factors of household food insecurity showed that the household income was significantly inversely associated with household food insecurity (RR = -0.489; 95% CI -0.540, -0.398; P < .001). Food insecurity with hunger in the households is significantly related to poverty of the households.
