The region served by the USAID/East Africa (EA) Mission continues to face daunting health challenges including rapid population growth; high rates of maternal and child morbidity and mortality; and a high burden of infectious diseases. Furthermore, each country experiences health systems challenges that hinder the government’s capacity to meet the health needs of its most vulnerable populations. African leaders and Global Health experts alike recognize the fundamental necessity of regional approaches to health sector development. They also recognize that Health sector development, both regionally and nationally, is dependent on sustainable solutions to health systems strengthening.
The goal of the USAID/EA Regional Health and HIV/AIDS (RHH) office project is to “Facilitate and Support Sustainable African-Led Health Sector Develop-ment to Improve the Lives of East Africans.” To contribute to this goal, USAID/EA will align its technical and financial resources to achieve the project purpose: “Catalyze and Accelerate the Scale-Up of High Impact and Sustainable Solutions to Priority Health Systems Challenges in East Africa.”
