Healthy rice for healthy lives

Policy Brief

As in many South Asian countries, diabetes is an important and growing health problem in Bangladesh. To a large degree, this development is driven by people’s unhealthy diets. The food and agriculture sectors, in collaboration with the health sector, have thus an important role to play in preventing diabetes. Promoting rice varieties that are less likely to cause this disease could be a promising strategy.
