hospital food improvements in sub saharan africa

By Andrew Beckingham | 29 May, 2016

I'm exploring if we improve the quality and diversity of the food within a hospital setting is improved I can improve the overall outcomes for patients. I've got some evidence from developed counties but the majority of work I can find seems to be around SAM/CMAM/MAternal nutrition. Does anyone know of some work showing a benefit to a hospital based food intervention on improving outcomes for medical and surgical patients in a developing context. The team want to improve nutrition for high risk patients but I think in the context it might be worth improving the nutrition of food provided to all patients.
Any suggestions on papers or ideas would be greatly appreciated!
