One of five countries in Central Asia, Kazakhstan has enjoyed steady growth over the past decade — largely fueled by its vast energy resources. Now a middle-income country, Kazakhstan continues to face a number of development challenges that constrain progress. The United States partners with Kazakhstan in support of its emergence as a leader contributing to peace and prosperity in the region.
Since 2006, USAID’s economic reform programs have been co-funded by the Government of Kazakhstan. USAID is partnering with the government, the private sector and the people of Kazakhstan to enhance economic diversification, encourage further democratic reforms and improve health care services, as well as to prevent tuberculosis and HIV.
