Ukraine plays a critical role in the United States Government’s efforts to help the countries of the former Soviet Union to establish democratic institutions and free market economics and integrate with global markets. USAID’s overarching goal for Ukraine is a stable, democratic and prosperous country. To achieve this goal, USAID is partnering with Ukrainians for more participatory, transparent and accountable governance processes, broad-based, resilient economic development and improved health and health systems. USAID places a special focus on efforts to counter-trafficking in persons, and provides support for the Chornobyl Shelter Fund as part of the international effort to clean up the Chornobyl nuclear facility.
