Thang Deih Tuang and Jeff Williamson highlight ongoing food insecurity in Chin state and a chance for reform during COVID-19.

[…] The long-term health impacts of poor malnutrition and food insecurity are now starkly apparent in Chin State with the onset of COVID-19. Not only are communities more vulnerable to the impact of the disease, but the disease itself is adversely affecting food security and furthering malnutrition by limiting access to markets. Together, these issues – malnutrition, COVID-19 and weak food security—have a vicious, cyclical effect on one another.
