Democracy, Human Rights, and Governance
Each of our activities, including those to improve the delivery of health care and to expand economic growth, seeks to improve government transparency and accountability. USAID is also working to improve budgeting and planning, supervision, information, procurement, and other intra-governmental systems that might improve service delivery. USAID also supports the electoral process and civil society engagement.
USAID works to increase literacy and entrepreneurship skills by improving the quality of instruction for adults and youth. In agriculture, USAID brings American volunteers to Angola to train farmers and agri-businesses in crop production, processing, and marketing.
Angola was one of the first three countries selected to participate in the President’s Malaria Initiative, which is helping to reduce malaria-related mortality by 50 percent. Through a partnership signed by Secretary Clinton and the Government of Angola, we strengthen efforts to curb the spread and mitigate the impact of HIV/AIDS. Our programs also seek to improve the quality of reproductive health programs, combat tuberculosis, and eradicate polio.
