The paper presents results of a comparative analysis of the health and nutritional effects of cash crop production in 6 countries-The Gambia, Guatemala, Kenya, Malawi, the Philippines, and Rwanda.
The 6 country case studies were conducted during the same time period and used a similar, although not identical, research protocol.
Participation in cash crop schemes resulted in increases in household income.
Short-term increases in household income did not result in a decrease in the incidence of illness in preschool-aged children nor in the total time that preschoolers were ill.
