Despite significant progress, nearly half a billion people in Asia still live in extreme poverty and income inequality is increasing. Asia faces enormous cross-border challenges, from global climate change, deforestation and biodiversity loss to economic growth, infectious diseases, pandemic threats and human trafficking. USAID partners with governments, civil society and the private sector to address these challenges in over 25 Asian countries.

USAID will soon launch a new multi-year comprehensive plan to combat trafficking in persons in the region.
