Global Health

Armenia has made substantial progress in improving the physical health and social well-being of its citizens. However, challenges remain in the areas of maternal and child health, reproductive health, and multi-drug resistant tuberculosis. 

USAID engaged in a strategic partnership with the Government of Armenia, civil society, and other stakeholders to address weaknesses and gaps in the health system that negatively impact maternal and child mortality and the burden of TB in the country. USAID targeted both access to and quality of care. 

Over the course of its current strategy, USAID gradually phased out its assistance to the health sector while preserving the legacies and improved outcomes of USAID’s twenty years of assistance.  USAID worked to further partnerships with the government and non-governmental organizations to enhance sustainable approaches and increase host-country ownership, and is no longer implementing health sector programs.
