Jordan has made important progress expanding access to quality water, education, and health services. It boasts a youthful workforce, vibrant local business community, growing civil society, and increasing capacity for good governance. However, unemployment is high, particularly among women and youth, and the rapidly growing population and influx of refugees from regional crises are straining the country’s limited resources, threatening to derail the country’s continued development.

The United States has partnered with Jordan to expand basic infrastructure, support good governance, and promote investment and the growth of industries, trade, entrepreneurship, and tourism. Today, USAID remains committed to supporting Jordan’s economic stability, security, and self-reliance by accelerating economic growth, strengthening democratic governance and accountability, and improving essential service delivery to meet the needs of the people of Jordan.

U.S. health investments in the Kingdom of Jordan are helping Jordan make the critical transition from donor recipient to development partner. But this transition isn’t always linear. While the health of Jordan’s population has improved significantly over the past few decades, witnessed by a 54% decline in maternal death and a 43% decrease in infant mortality since 1997, the effects of recent geopolitical events—most notably the Syrian crisis—and internal economic challenges have threatened these gains and the ability of the Government of Jordan to provide quality healthcare to all within its borders. It was within the context of this critical development challenge that I was invited to observe activities and to participate in events that represent how USAID programs have evolved to help Jordan address this challenge head on.
