Democracy, Human Rights, and Governance

Each of our activities, including those to improve the delivery of health care and to expand economic growth, seeks to improve government transparency and accountability. We also work to improve budgeting and planning, supervision, information, procurement, and other intra-governmental systems that might improve service delivery. USAID also supports the electoral process and civil society engagement.

Economic Growth and Trade

USAID works to increase literacy and entrepreneurship skills by improving the quality of instruction for adults and youth. In agriculture, USAID brings American volunteers to Angola to train farmers and agri-businesses in crop production, processing, and marketing.

Global Health

Angola was one of the first three countries selected to participate in the President’s Malaria Initiative, which is helping to reduce malaria-related mortality by 50 percent. Through a partnership signed by Secretary Clinton and the Government of Angola, we strengthen efforts to curb the spread and mitigate the impact of HIV/AIDS. Our programs also seek to improve the quality of reproductive health programs, combat tuberculosis, and eradicate polio.

Water and Sanitation

USAID/Angola, through funding from the Agency’s LocalWorks Program (formerly Development Grants Program) supports the GRA to operationalize its Community Water Management Model (MOGECA) that maintains proper operational management of its existing and future water infrastructures established through the Water for All Initiative.
