The excerpts presented in this issue of Cajanus focus on food preservation - basic techniques, preserving some of our local Caribbean foods, and the consequences of preservation on nutrient content. Anyone with an interest in food preservation will find this issue of Cajanus interesting and enlightening.

The information presented in this issue of Cajanus focuses on the care of adults infected with HIV and is available in the handbook for the nutritional management of HIV/AIDS in the Caribbean. Some of the articles included discuss the mode of transmission and the effects the virus has on the body, the importance of drug-food interactions and the precautions one should take with regards to minimizing these effects.

Nutrition is an essential component of healthy living both for those infected with HIV and those who are not. Healthy eating has an important role to play in the holistic approach to better living. We hope that in these two editions of Cajanus we have helped all those living with the virus and those caring for them to have a better understanding of how and why healthy eating can lead to better living.

This issue of CAJANUS focuses on several important aspects of chronic diseases. The burden, complexity and cost of these diseases are collectively threatening the ability of Caribbean countries to improve the overall health of its citizens. The wide-ranging effects of chronic diseases necessitate all sectors of society to be more aware of the conditions and  accelerators of their disabling and life threatening conditions.

For over forty years in the Caribbean, we have been using growth references to help in assessing and monitoring the nutritional status of young children. WHO has released new child growth references which will replace those currently used in the region and elsewhere.
