USAID is maintaining critical health services including procurement, delivery and warehousing of essential pharmaceuticals and health commodities, disease surveillance and response, programs to prevent and treat tuberculosis and HIV, routine childhood immunization, including polio, and health systems strengthening, and has expanded programs to complement the enormous humanitarian response. This includes supporting emergency services to provide effective and sustainable access to water, sanitation and hygiene, helping to prevent violence toward women and girls, and providing support services for those affected by gender-based violence.
