About Namibia


In the two decades since independence, Namibia has made tremendous strides in establishing a free, viable nation. The country has an independent judiciary, well-protected property rights and a fairly good labor market. It also boasts well-developed financial markets, as well as excellent infrastructure by regional standards. However, several formidable challenges constrain progress, including addressing one of the world’s worst HIV epidemics, one of the world’s highest levels of income disparity, a high unemployment rate, and a flawed education system. USAID concentrates on providing critical support to improve health and education.
