Optimal and sustainable overall well-being of individuals and families has continued to be a major concern of Home Economics. The Home Economics Research Association of Nigeria (HERAN) recognizes that the world is not static. Daily, many breathtaking changes, occasioned by the world order, occur in the social, economic and political arena. Globalization enhanced by unprecedented information communication technology (ICT) revolution, with its various facets and challenges is on course. Poverty, unemployment, diseases including HIV/AIDS, environmental degradation, violence, crimes, and so on, are ravaging developing countries, including those in Africa and the rest of the world. These and many more impact on the family, leaving it with a barrage of challenges which threaten its very survival. This situation has crucial and enormous implications for Home Economics in the developing countries like Nigeria.
