USAID programs in Pakistan focus on five key areas: energy, economic growth, stabilization, education, and health. All efforts incorporate two crosscutting themes—good governance and gender equity. An array of partnerships with the Government of Pakistan, the private sector, and Pakistani civil society helps ensure that assistance programs are aligned with local priorities and build local capacity. USAID/Pakistan now leads USAID efforts throughout the world in funding local partners at over 60% of our budget. USAID develops legacy institutions and transformational partnerships and practices to ensure that assistance impact is sustained beyond the time period of our programs.
