Health, food and nutrition

During 1988, the United Nations continued to respond to the international problems relating to health, food and nutrition. The spread of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome ( AIDS) posed a greater threat to human health; the World Health Organization reported a 15-fold increase over a four-year period. In October, the General Assembly urged continued support for the world-wide struggle against AIDS (resolution 43/15).
