dc.description.abstract The use of ethnographic methods unravelled that families face multiple problems in managing the converging impact of TB, HIV/AIDS and food insecurity. The emerging themes in the conversations of many people; 'the food that nourishes the blood' and 'if there was no grant we would die of hunger' indicates that financial security and adequate nutrition are pivotally important for strengthening the immune response of people affected with TB and HIV illness. The fieldwork took place between October 2006 and September 2007 in Mbekweni Township, outside the Paarl district in the Western Cape. en_ZA
