ANTANANARIVO, Madagascar – USAID celebrated its thirty years of presence in Madagascar on December 12th. In the three decades since it first opened an office in Antananarivo in 1984, USAID has been working to protect Madagascar’s unique biodiversity, support anti-corruption reforms, increase access to basic education, reduce food insecurity,  strengthen the country’s ability to respond to natural disasters, improve access to basic health care and family planning services, and fight trafficking in persons.  USAID will continue to support the people and the government of Madagascar to end extreme poverty and promote a resilient, democratic society with greater security and prosperity.

“This is a time of hope and change for Madagascar,” said Mission Director Susan Riley.  “Let’s celebrate today by renewing our commitment to take concrete actions that will lead to health and prosperity for all 22 million people in the country. We need to keep moving forward because there’s so much more work awaiting us ahead.”
