Jordan’s people are the country’s greatest asset. A healthy and productive population is fundamental to the country’s future economic growth and political stability. USAID and Jordan share a longstanding partnership to strengthen the country’s health system, enhancing the quality of health care services, training health-care providers, and constructing health-care facilities throughout the country. The Kingdom has made enormous progress in recent years in reducing maternal and infant mortality and expanding and improving health infrastructure.

Jordan is one of the most water-scarce countries in the world.

It’s mid afternoon in Amman, Jordan and the USAID-supported Habibi Valtiberina Association facility in Saint Joseph Parish Church is bustling in preparation for the day’s business. The Italian organization runs the Saint Joseph Pizza Project, a program that provides culinary and food service training to Iraqi Christians who fled ISIS persecution in northern Iraq. The trainees practice their skills in a full service restaurant situated in the church complex. The kitchen is full of energy as a group of chefs chop colorful vegetables, mix pizza dough, and lay fresh pastas out to dry.
