Agriculture and Food Security
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 working with the private sector and civil society to provide training and support for farmers.
Democracy, Human Rights, and Governance
USAID is supporting Zimbabweans’ efforts to achieve the democratic transition outlined in the 2008 Global Political Agreement. U.S. assistance focuses increasing citizens’ ability to participate in democratic processes and on strengthening 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 a broad portfolio of health programs combat diseases such as HIV/AIDS, malaria, and TB, and provide integrated maternal, reproductive, and child health care through sustainable health systems.
Working in Crises and Conflict
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.
