To help Zimbabwe progress from relief to recovery to development, USAID promotes agricultural and livelihood development by rebuilding deteriorated extension services for smallholder farmers and works with the private sector and civil society to provide training and support for farmers.
USAID supports Zimbabweans’ efforts to achieve the democratic transition outlined in the 2008 Global Political Agreement. U.S. assistance increases citizens’ ability to participate in democratic processes and strengthens democratic institutions.
In addition to USAID’s support for agriculture, U.S. assistance promotes economic reform and recovery in Zimbabwe by improving the ability of decision-makers to apply sound data and theory to their efforts to reduce poverty.
USAID’s broad portfolio of health programs combat diseases such as HIV/AIDS, malaria, and TB, and provides integrated maternal, reproductive, and child health care through sustainable health systems.
To help Zimbabweans improve their resilience to humanitarian crises, USAID responds to short-term emergency needs while laying the foundation for long-term food and economic security.
